Leaf Collection

Friday, October 5, 2018

Leaf pick-up by the Department of Public Works (DPW) will begin the week of October 8, 2018. Please park cars as far away from leaf piles as possible. It is also very important to make sure that there is no debris in the leaf piles (garbage, sticks, etc). The leaves should be piled as close to the curb as possible and not placed into the road, ditches, storm drains or parking places. The closer the piles are to the curb, the quicker they are able to be collected by the equipment.
