Every year the city works with residents to collect fallen leaves from the curb to create clean and safe neighborhood streets in preparation for the winter season.

Once the leaves have fallen, the city sends leaf crews armed with vacuum machines and rakes, to condense the debris, and keep our streets clean.


Note: Crews may pick up bulk piles of leaves in advance of your scheduled date. If so, they will return on the scheduled pick-up day for remaining leaves.

Inclement Weather

Delays may occur due to inclement weather; however, every household will receive two leaf pickups before the season ends.

Tips for Successful Leaf Removal

  • Please do not park cars street-side during scheduled pick-up days.
  • Leaves will not be picked up if mixed with tree limbs and debris.
Reduce Flooding by Keeping Storm Sewers Clear of Debris

Residents are reminded not to rake leaves into the street as this may clog the storm sewers and result in serious flooding during heavy rains. To mitigate chances of flooding, place leaves in brown paper yard waste bags or tan yard waste carts before and after the Curbside Leaf Pickup Program takes place. Or, consider mulching your leaves as an alternative that provides nutrients to your lawn. Learn more about leaf mulching here.
