Leaf Collection Schedule

The City Public Works Department will again collect loose leaves starting December 2, 2019.  They are starting in the SW corner of the City, then to the NW, NE and SE and will probably make 2 to 3 rounds.

We remind residents to rake the leaves to the curb, but not into the street, and to remove all sticks and stones from the pile as these can damage the machinery.

Rake leaves into open areas along the curb, avoiding mailboxes, fire hydrants, signs, parked cars, and other obstacles that would prevent the leaf collection truck from getting to your leaves. We also remind residents not to park in front of leaf piles.

Here’s how you can help the city meet its leaf collection schedule:
Do not rake leaves into the street or storm sewers; leaves clogging the storm sewers can cause flooding during heavy rains.

Do not rake twigs, branches, sticks, rocks, bottles, garden debris, pumpkins, etc., in with the leaves; these items can clog up the machine and cause considerable delay to the leaf collection.

Avoid parking near leaf piles. Piles blocked by vehicles will not be picked up as it is difficult for the truck and leaf machine to maneuver around parked cars.

Rake leaves as close to the curb as possible and cover them with some type of tarp.
