LEAF COLLECTION

Stay Tuned for Information on Leaf Collection in the fall.....

PLEASE DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES MIX BRANCHES OR ROCKS WITH LEAVES!  DOING SO IMPEDES OUR LEAF COLLECTION PROCESS AND CAUSES MECHANICAL BREAKDOWNS OF MACHINERY

  • Leaf Collection will begin annually typically around the second week of October, weather permitting.  The leaf collection schedule will be posted here and on the Community TV prior to the start of the schedule.
  • Residents should place leaves on the curb either loose or in biodegradable bags by the Monday morning of the scheduled pick-up week.
  • Residents are encouraged to bring their leaves to the Environmental Center on Fridays between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. or on Saturdays between 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. 
  • Leaves must be in cans, barrels or biodegradable bags to be accepted.  NO loose leaves (tarped) will be accepted.

  • The final leaf collection typically starts at the beginning of December and the date will be announced in the fall. If leaves are not curbside by the time each street is completed, the DPW will NOT be returning and leaves will not be picked up.  Once the final collection is completed, leaf removal will be the responsibility of the resident.
  • Leaf collection may change, be delayed, or be suspended due to unforeseen mechanical breakdowns or inclement weather conditions.

**We ask all residents to please adhere to these regulations to ensure a timely and efficient collection.
