Bag and Can Leaves for Weekly Curbside Pickup

When will bags be collected? Do I have to put leaf collection bags out on a special day?
Bags can be put out to the curb on any day, but for pickup each week must be curbside by 7 a.m. on Monday for North End residents and Wednesday for South End residents.

What happens when yard waste bags get wet?

Yard waste bags were designed to withstand the elements. And with weekly pickups, all bags will not be out very long.

What kind of containers can I use for leaves?
You may use the same containers as currently accepted for yard waste. Collection will be handled the same way yard waste collection is handled. Please do not cover them with lids or they may be mistaken for garbage and not collected.
