• Downtown area: Leaves in this area will be picked up intermittently as time permits.
Where possible, residents are asked to rake leaves one foot out of the gutter onto the street to allow drainage in the gutter. Vehicles should be removed from the streets during collection dates. Residents are reminded that foreign objects, limbs, etc. should be kept out of the leaves since they will damage collection equipment and slow the collection process.
This schedule is to be considered tentative, subject to weather and equipment delays. If there are questions on the leaf collection schedule, call the City of Troy Central Maintenance & Service Facility at 335-1914 between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.
