Clean Loose Leaves and Pine Needles
The City's leaf vacuum machine only picks up clean loose leaves and pine needles.
- Leaves are to be at the curb line or on shoulder — not in travel lane and not blocking fire hydrants
- Do not place any type of foreign materials, such as: lumber, stones, bricks, branches, any type of garden or flower bed stalks, etc. in with the leaves. If any such items are found to be present, the leaf pile will not be picked up. Any materials other than leaves can cause personal injuries and damage the leaf vacuum. A separate fee will be charged for such items.
Weekly loose leaf collection schedule
All loose leaves and pine needles must be out early on the collection morning; if not they will be picked up the next scheduled day. There will not be any backtracking.
May 15 - September 30 : No loose leaves or loose pine needles - see Year Round disposal methods above
