The Property Maintenance Department collects loose leaves November - February.
Crews work an assigned route and cannot take special requests or special arrangements. Loose leaf piles should be placed behind the curb or edge of pavement without blocking the sidewalk or street. Do not rake or blow leaves into the street as this violates city code ordinance and presents a safety hazard and a flooding concern when leaves are washed into storm drains.
Loose leaves in the alley are only collected once at the end of the season.
Please note, if it rains we can not collect loose leaves. Rainy weather hinders loose leaf collection causing the trucks to get behind schedule.
Please separate tree limbs and shrubs from your loose leaf piles, these items can damage our vacuum equipment and create a safety hazard for our crews.
Please keep leaf piles in an open area, away from obstructions such as parked vehicles, fire hydrants, mailboxes, fencing, landscaping, water meters, utility poles and guy wires. Our crews need room to work and do not want to damage our equipment or your property while collecting loose leaves.
Crews work each area until they have passed that area completely and then move to another area. Equipment issues and weather conditions can hinder the collection of leaves.
