Streets Dept. Mechanical Leaf Collection Reinstituted

The Leaf Collection and Recycling Program is one of several services provided by the Streets Department to honor the City's on-going commitment to recycling. This recycling program helps to reduce the amount of materials that reach the waste stream and saves landfill space.

The 2014 Leaf Collection and Recycling Program will begin Monday, November 10, and will end Friday, December 19. The 2014 leaf collection effort will consist of two pick up methods:

  1. Bagged leaf Drop-Off will be offered city-wide, on a weekly basis, on Saturdays for 6 weeks starting November 10, 2014 at 22 designated neighborhood locations from 9 AM to 3 PM (with the exception of the Saturdays following Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving Holidays). For a full location list CLICK HERE.

  2. Mechanical leaf collection will be offered on a designated weekly schedule in areas with a heavy concentration of leaves. To find out if/when your block is scheduled for mechanical collection CLICK HERE.
