Leaf Collection

Leaf Collection generally begins in late October and runs through late November. We would appreciate the following courtesies during leaf collection:
  • Rake your leaves into long narrow piles along the curb. This makes it easier and quicker for us to vacuum the leaves; we cannot reach leaves more than a few feet from the edge of the street, and will not go up into yards to retrieve leaves the hoses cannot reach.
  • The leaf vacuums can only accept leaves. Please do not place sticks, pine cones, gravel or other non-leaf objects in your piles. Any damage to our leaf vacuums can delay collection.
  • Park your cars off the street if possible. The large truck and trail leaf vacuum are difficult to maneuver and clear streets make our job much quicker.
  • There is no set schedule or particular day for leaf collection as the volume of leaves placed for collection cannot be controlled or predicted, and therefore the service varies each week. Every attempt is made to make a complete round through town each week, but during heavy times the service may extend to bi-weekly.
