City Announces Residential Curbside Leaf Collection Schedule

Between November and January, citizens can rake loose leaves to the curb for free collection on select weeks. 

The City is divided into two collection routes, Red and Blue. Each route will have five collection weeks, starting the week of Nov. 7 for those on the Red Route and Nov. 14 for those on the Blue Route. Collection on each route will occur every other week. 

Leaves must be raked to the curb or road edge – not in the street or in a drainage way – by 7 a.m. of the first day of any collection week. Each street on each route will be collected only once during the collection week.

Please note the following guidelines:

  • Place leaf piles in an open area for easy vacuum truck access. Leaf piles behind vehicles, trees, or bushes cannot be picked up.
  • Do not mix sticks or limbs into your leaf piles.
  • In case of rain, crews will pick up on the route where they left off prior to the rain.
  • Bagged leaves can be placed curbside to be collected with garbage on any garbage collection day. There is a 10-bag limit per household per collection day.
