Residents are reminded of the following leaf collection guidelines:
  • Place all loose leaves on the tree lawn, not the pavement or sidewalk and not in the vicinity of catch basins.
  • Ensure all leaf piles are free of garbage and other yard waste items such as brush, branches and large twigs are placed in a separate pile conforming to yard waste guidelines.
  • Commingled piles of leaves and grass clippings or piles of grass clippings will not be collected.
  • Ensure that no loose stone, asphalt or concrete is in leaf pile.
  • Contaminated piles of leaves will not be collected.
  • DO NOT park in on top of leaf piles. If you do, they will not be collected.
You may check the status of the crew in your area of the city by accessing this map.
