The city provides leaf collection services between the months of October and February, depending on conditions necessitating the service. The department offers two types of service, collection for loose leaves and for bagged leaves.
Citizens will receive prompt service for leaves that are bagged. Bagged leaves must be in biodegradable bags that can be bought at the Public Works department located at 942 Maplewood Avenue and at City Hall, located at 201 West Grundy Street. Bags should be placed curbside for easy collection. Call Public Works after bagging the leaves for pickup in about 72 hours.
Loose leaves are collected by staff as quickly as possible; however, due to the large volume, wait times can be extensive. Collection begins sometime in October, depending on conditions necessitating the service. Routes are run three times during the season.

Remember, leaves must be kept separate from other items such as rocks, limbs, or other materials that will damage our equipment. Leaves should be raked near the road but out of drainage ditches. Leaves raked into the street will not be collected and are a violation of city ordinance.
