Update: Transfer Station will be open Saturday, November 25.

Leaf Pickup

Leaf crews are currently in Area 5 and will move to Area 1 next. Signs that state “Leaf pickup in this area next” are posted approximately one week before entering your area.

Please place loose leaves on your property at the curb in front of your house before your area is scheduled for the next pick-up to ensure they are not missed. If leaves are not out as the crews pass in front of your house, they will be picked up on the next rotation. A map of the pickup areas and a list of sign locations are posted on the Public Works page.

Loose leaves should be placed at the curb in a pile, separate from any brush and other yard waste. Brush and waste could damage the leaf machine and cause delays in pickup.  All leaves must be away from utility poles, mailboxes, or other structures. Do not block drainage ditches or curbside drainage catch basins with leaves - this violates Stormwater Regulations.

For safety reasons, leaves must not hinder traffic or block travel lanes. This is extremely dangerous to motorists. If you live at an intersection, keep leaves away from the intersecting street. Wet or frozen leaves are slick and can make it difficult to stop.
