Leaf Pickup Schedule

2023 to 2024 Leaf Pickup Program Dates

  • October 22, 2023 to January 7, 2024

Program Guidelines

To experience the full benefit of the program and assist the crews in collecting as many leaves as possible please follow these guidelines:

  • Please have loose leaves at the curbside on your scheduled date. The crew will make one complete pass per area before moving to the next area.
  • Leaves that have been trampled or crushed by traffic or have been sitting for a long time cannot be collected by the machinery and will be left.
  • Loose leaves, if placed in the street, should be raked into rows instead of a single pile and must be 12 inches away from the curb to allow storm drain clearance.
  • City crews will not pick up bagged leaves.
  • There will be no leaf pickup on private streets.
  • To be most efficient, we ask citizens to not park vehicles or place refuse/recycling bins on or near leaves at the curb. The equipment is big and bulky and cannot reach tight areas.

Pickup Schedule

Leaves must be in the street by the below dates or they will not be collected; crews will be in your area within 1 to 4 days.

Safety Tip

Piles of leaves in the street are tempting for motorists to drive through and for young children to play in. Parents, please inform your children of the dangers associated with playing in or around roadways at all times. All citizens should encourage street smarts and safety with family, friends, and neighbors.
