A leaf collector is attached to a utility truck to remove leaves. Leaf collections are made continuously within the city limits throughout the season until all leaves are removed.
Residents are asked to follow these guidelines for leaf collection:
Rake leaves to the tree lawn area and avoid raking them into the street, as this will plug the street storm drains causing them to flood during rain.
Make sure each leaf pile is free of contamination such as rocks, sticks, branches, trash, and pumpkins that could cause injury or equipment damage. Note: We cannot pick up these piles and it will be the property owner’s responsibility to remove contamination from the leaf piles.
Drive Safely-Please watch out for children playing in leaf piles.
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 without a permit is a violation of City Ordinance and is prohibited.
