The Department of Public Works announces the following schedule for the collection of leaves:   Starting October 15, 2018 and ending January 11, 2019 LEAVES MAY BE PLACED IN THE CITY STREET FOR COLLECTION.  

For most areas leaves in the street will be collected the day after your normal trash pickup day.  Those areas with trash pickup on Friday will have their leaves picked up the following Monday. Areas where street sweeping occurs overnight will have their leaves collected on the street sweeping schedule.

After January 11, 2019, regular yard waste collection rules apply.  All leaves must be placed in privately owned 35 gallon or less plastic yard waste containers.  Yard waste containers are picked up on the regular weekly collection schedule.  Only loose leaves/yard waste material can be placed inside the containers.  No plastic or paper bags can be used.
