Loose leaves are collected from October 1 - December 31 with a leaf vacuum machine and taken to a composting facility. Please follow these rules:
Rake leaves to the curb or to the sidewalk, if you have one.
Keep leaves free of debris and litter.
Do NOT rake large branches, rocks, litter or animal waste into leaf piles. Large sticks and rocks can damage vacuum equipment, cause breakdowns, and injure employees.
Do NOT rake leaves into the gutter, street, storm drains or drainage swales. (Acid from leaves is harmful to the local watershed).
Do NOT park in front of leaf piles. Public Works will NOT remove leaves from behind or under parked cars.
After December 31, loose leaves will be collected as yard waste.
The leaf vacuum is operated by the Streets Division. If you have any concerns please contact Public Works at 502-352-2088.
