Fall Leaf Collection

LOOSE LEAF COLLECTION:  OCT. 22 - DEC. 4, 2020

The Loose Leaf Collection program will begin on October 22, 2020.  This program offers residents the ease of raking leaves into piles onto their extension without bagging. 

The Department of Public Works (DPW) will utilize equipment to collect the loose leaf piles and deliver to nearby fields for composting. Collection north of Michigan Avenue is on Mondays/Tuesdays and south of Michigan Avenue on Thursdays/Fridays. Residents are not guaranteed that their leaves will be picked up each week on these days.  Occasionally other work demands will prevent the DPW from clearing the entire City in a given week. Residents must have all leaves raked out at the curb by Sunday, November 29th. Starting Monday, November 30th, the DPW will make a final pass through each street collecting leaves. 

Leaves not at the curb by Sunday, November 29th, will not be collected.

·         Collection:  Oct. 22, 2020 through Dec. 4, 2020 (weather permitting).

·         Rake leaves onto extension by Sunday, November 29, 2020, for final collection.

·         Move vehicle from street on collection days.
