2020 Curbside Leaf Collection
The 2020 Curbside Leaf Program is getting close. We are busy preparing the machines for the 2020 season here at the Public Works.
Please continue to bag your leaves until we officially start our season.
PLEASE be reminded that once the leaf crews have gone by your house, in order to keep to the schedule, we cannot accommodate requests for returns until the next scheduled pickup. PLEASE do not place additional leaves out until then.
Tips for Leaf Placement.
*Place your leaves in wind-rows (long, narrow, neat piles), curbside(NOT IN THE ROAD) by the starting date.
This is the preferred way of placing your leaves out for collection.
*Do not place leaves within 10 feet of a storm drain inlet.
*Do not park vehicles near the leaf wind-rows...if we can't reach your leaves we cannot pick them up!
No twigs, branches, trash, or other debris are to be in leaf wind-rows.
These items must be removed from your leaves prior to our vacuum arrival. These materials damage our vacuums creating equipment downtime which hampers our ability to keep to the schedule. If we find these materials in your leaves, your wind-rows will be left and we will not return until the next pass. At the next pass, your wind-rows will still need to be clear of the material.
Cooperation from every resident is essential for the program's success.
