City crews will be working this weekend to collect additional leaves

December 9 2013

Raking leaves

Set out any extra leaves for pickup this weekend, December 14 and 15.

City crews will collect leaves set out in biodegradable paper yard waste bags or store-bought bins.

Green Bins and leaves placed in plastic bags, including biodegradable plastic bags, will not be picked up.

If your leaves are not picked up on your collection day this week, please leave them out for pickup for the weekend crews.

Unlimited leaf collection program reminders

  • You can set out an unlimited quantity of leaves for pickup until January 31.
  • Fill up your Green Bin with leaves first. Additional leaves can be placed in a store-bought garbage can or biodegradable paper bag.
  • Do not put your leaves in your garbage cart or in plastic bags. They will not be collected.
  • Do not rake or blow leaves into the street.
  • Move your vehicle off the street if the City's leaf removal crews post temporary no-parking signs on your block.
