With fall here leaf collection season is upon us.  Leaf collection will begin Monday, October 17, 2011 and ends Wednesday, November 23, 2011. At this time, city crews will be vacuuming loose leaves in each neighborhood. Our goal is to be in each neighborhood multiple times during this collection period. Heavy volume and weather may cause crews to fall behind schedule, but we will proceed in sequence through the entire city. We appreciate your patience. 

  • Place leaves loosely on the terrace, not on the street. Your cooperation will reduce street drainage problems and inlet clogging.
  • Grass clippings and garden stalks must be shorter than 12 inches in length.
  • Separate leaves from the brush. Brush collection is the first full work week (our work week begins on Monday) of every month on your regular refuse collection day.
In the event of an early snowfall, not getting leaves out to the terrace the day after garbage day or by your last scheduled leaf collection day, the city drop-off site located at the Public Works Facility on Baldwin Street is available.
