All leaves must be out by 7:30 a.m. on the date listed for your area. The staff will then move through the designated zone until it is finished. Fridays will be kept free for catching up, if needed.

Please do not mix brush and limbs in with the leaves. Brush is disposed in a completely different way and limbs cannot be vacuumed into our leaf collection boxes.

Leaves should be raked one foot away from the curb onto the street to allow drainage in the gutters. For streets without curbs, leaves must be as close to the road as possible. Please do not rake leaves around mail boxes, trees, etc. Vehicles should be removed from the streets on collection dates. Foreign objects and limbs must be kept out of the leaves. Please have leaves out ready for pick-up on the first day of the two-day pick-up scheduled in the zone. If leaves fall late, the staff will make one more round to each zone between December 4 and December 8, weather permitting.
