Prepare Leaves for Fall Leaf Collection:

Leaves in street
How to Prepare Leaves for Collection
  • Rake leaves into the street (except on major streets; see below)
  • Leave at least one foot of gutter space between the leaf pile and the curb-this allows water to drain to catch basins and  allows a more thorough collection, as leaves will not spill back onto your property.
  • Keep brush and refuse out of leaf piles
  • Do not park in the street when leaf collection is in your area
  • Leaves can also be placed in yard waste bins or compost bags - no stickers are required

Street Sweeping
Following completion of the final round of fall leaf collection, a street sweeper thoroughly cleans each area, weather permitting. The streets are not swept until the fall leaf collection program has been completed. Any leaves that have not been collected after the final round must be bagged or placed in a yard waste bin for weekly refuse collection.
