April-September all leaves need to be bagged and placed curbside.
October-March the leaf vacuum will be utilized to collect loose leaves that are free of brush, junk, debris, and/or refuse.
Regardless of the season and collection method the quickest, safest, and cleanest way to have leaves collected is to bag them and place them curbside.
When blowing or raking leaves do not place them in the street. Place the leaves 3-5 feet from the roadway. Blowing leaves into the street can pose problems for motorists, storm water flow, and general safety. When leaves become wet they can cause the roadway to become slick, increasing the risk of accidents. Leaves will also block storm drains, which can cause flooded roadways and accidents.
Leaves need to be placed as far away from obstacles as possible. Placing leaves near cars, utility poles, mailboxes, fences, etc. will prevent leaf collection.
Public Works will make every effort to collect leaves in a timely manner. While we have procedures in place to formulate lists of leaves, calling to report leaves at your residence is always helpful.
