Beginning November 1, 2021 to December 30, 2021, leaf pickup crews will be picking up leaves by WORK ZONE ONLY.

Citizens Guidelines:

  • Rake leaves to the right-of-way of the street BEFORE the first scheduled pickup date.
  • Crews do not go onto private property such as along driveways or behind houses to pick up leaves.
  • Do not place leaves in the gutter line of the street, on sidewalks or in the street, around fire hydrants, mailboxes guywires or parked vehicles and must not obstruct drainage structures, this violates City Ordinance and may result in civil fines and could cause accidents to vehicles or pedestrians resulting in personal liability.
  • Leaves will not be picked up from commercial properties, in private subdivision, along private roadways, in alleys or in mobile home parks.
  • Ensure leaf piles are clear of any debris including tree limbs, rocks, household trash, discarded furniture, wheels/tires or any other debris that may cause damage to equipment or injury to crews.
