Leaf Collection

FALL 2020 LEAF COLLECTION POSTCARD_web

Residential Curbside Leaf Collection (Fall)

  • Place leaves in a neat row at the curb, not in the road.
  • Do not bag leaves. Bagged leaves will not be collected.
  • Do not mix brush, branches, or seed pods with leaves.
  • No grass clippings are accepted curbside or at the Recycling Center.
  • Place materials at the curb no more than 1 week prior to your collection date. Do not place this material on the street and/or sidewalks. This creates a serious hazard for children walking to school and other pedestrians, as well as an unsightly condition in your neighborhood.
  • The maximum collection per residence, per pickup, is 4 cubic yards (2 feet wide by 3 feet high by 18 feet in length).
  • Residents are responsible for leaf removal after the scheduled pick up occurs.  Under recently amended regulations, the Department of Public Works is also authorized to remove improperly disposed materials and assess the cost of removal and disposal against the responsible resident.
