When will my leaves get picked up?

Residents can call 311 to request leaf pickup from Monday, April 11 to Friday, April 22. Leaf pickup will begin the week of April 18.


Where should I put my leaves?

Leaves should be raked to the curb, NOT into the street, to prevent them from clogging storm inlets. Resident should rake leaves prior to calling 311 to ensure they are picked up. 

Residents are asked to follow these guidelines for the program:

  • Leaves need to be free of trash and other debris or they may not be collected.  
  • Leaves need to be in the tree lawn area by 6:00 a.m. to ensure they are picked up. 
  • Rake leaves to the tree lawn, NOT into the street.
  • Avoid parking on top or in front of leaf piles along curb lines, as this hampers our crew from collecting the leaves.
  • Burning of leaves is prohibited and is a violation of City ordinance.
  • Residents may call 311 with any questions
