[ARCHIVED] Fall Leaf Collection Begins

2013 Leaf Collection Season Begins

Fall Leaf Collection begins on Tuesday, October 15 and conclude at the end of December. Leaves must be either raked to the curb and stacked in long windrows, or bagged for pickup following the guidelines below. As an alternative to raking or bagging, the City is also encouraging property owners to mulch mow their leaves through the “Love ‘Em and Leave ‘Em” campaign.

Love ‘Em and Leave ‘Em: Mulch mowing leaves (shredding in place) is easier and faster than raking or blowing them to the curb. Mulch mowing recycles nutrients into the soil to feed lawns and gardens, providing a free natural fertilizer. A live demonstration will take place on November 2 at Glenwood Lake Park. For more information, visit .

Bagged Leaves: Leaves should be placed in biodegradable 30-40 gallon paper bags or open containers weighing no more than 75 pounds. Citywide pickup of bagged leaves will occur on the following six Saturdays: November 9rd, 16th, 23rd and December 7st, 14th 21st. Leaves placed in plastic WILL NOT be collected.

Curbside Collection: Leaves should be raked into neat piles near the curb lines of properties to facilitate pick up. Cars should not be parked on top of or near leaf piles. Branches and debris should not be mixed with leaves to avoid damaging City equipment. Leaf piles should never be placed near catch basins or fire hydrants. It is also important that they do not block traffic lanes, causing vehicles to veer into oncoming traffic. Residents are responsible for making sure that their gardeners follow the rules.

Effective October 15, 2013, Alternate Side of the Street sweeping will end. Alternate Side of the Street parking rules WILL REMAIN IN EFFECT to expedite the removal of leaves.

For further information, call the Leaf Removal Hot Line at 654-6510. For other inquiries or concerns, call 235-4029, Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM to 3:30 PM.

With the onset of leaf collection, yard waste collection is suspended until spring.
