  • Leaves should be raked out to the curb or to the furthest point of the lawn by 7:00 a.m. each Monday. Because there is only one crew collecting leaves, it may take all week to do the entire route.  Please be patient.
  • If you are concerned about leaves blowing, you may cover them with a tarp.  Please do not bag them.
  • Keep leaves away from any poles, trees or signs and please refrain from blowing or raking leaves into the street as they can clog drains and lead to flooding.
  • Do not place leaves in bags for this seasonal collection.
  • Please make sure that leaves are free of brush, glass, cans, rocks and other debris, as these items may cause injury to workers and damage to the collection equipment.
