[ARCHIVED] DPW Yard Waste Collection Begins October 18

dont leave your leaves

Vacuum leaf collection begins on Monday, October 18. DPW Crews make every effort to maintain day-certain leaf collection. Leaves are collected on a weekly basis.

Please rake leaves into piles at the edge of the curb, but do NOT place leaves in the street. Leaves in the street are more likely to clog inlet drains and cause street flooding. Do not include any other yard waste debris in the leaf pile. The vacuum machines are unable to collect twigs, branches, plants or other compost material. These items plug the vacuum machines, resulting in significant delays and potentially costly repairs. Please bag all other debris in paper yard waste bags for normal yard waste bags for normal yard waste collection.

Leaf collection will continue through Friday, December 3 with the following exceptions: the leaf vacuum machines are unable to pick up leaves that have become frozen to the ground or are exceptionally heavy from water. Freezing rain, sleet or snow will halt the vacuum collection of leaves; the vacuum attachments will be removed and the equipment will be prepared for winter operations. After this point, leaves must be bagged in paper yard waste bags for collection.
