Leaf pick up continues

Curbside leaf pick up has begun. The Service Department will continue picking up leaves through December, as weather permits.

Leaves should be placed on the tree lawn, not in the street where they can block storm drains in the event of inclement weather. Branches, landscape rocks, bricks and other solid yard debris should be placed in separate piles for pick up.

Crews work from the east to west sides of the city. There is no specific day for any street because the volume of leaves to be picked up and weather impacts the length of time it takes to complete a full sweep of the city.

Leaves not collected in the fall, should be placed in paper refuse bags at curbside for pick up by Republic Services when collection of brown bags resumes in April. Republic picks up brown bags weekly through December.
