[ARCHIVED] 2021 Leaf Pickup

For your convenience, City crews will be coming through your neighborhood for leaf pickup this fall. We’ve mapped out the entire community, so please be patient, and we’ll get to your leaves as soon as we can.

We are fortunate to have giant leaf vacuum in our fleet of equipment, but to ensure it functions properly and efficiently, we have to follow a few important procedures and you can help:

  • Please put your leaves by the curb or street but not in the street. This will allow us to efficiently pick up your pile and help keep your street safe for drivers and cyclists.
  • Please do NOT place your leaves in the alley. We cannot use our vacuum machine in alleyways.
  • Please do NOT put brush, weeds, rocks, bricks, etc., in your leaf pile. This kind of debris can damage the equipment and jeopardize our ability to cleanup your neighborhood. In fact, we’re always on the lookout, and if we notice extra debris in a leaf pile, we will have to pass on by.

If you have an urgent need for leaf pickup before or after the above listed dates, please bag your leaves and set the bags out for the Sanitation Department. We’re happy to collect your first 10 bags at no charge. For any pickups of more than 10 bags at once, there will be a minimum charge of $25. 

Also, please note that the established pickup dates may vary due to weather conditions or equipment breakdowns.
