The Leaf Collection and Recycling Program is one of several
services provided by the Streets Department to honor the City's on-going
commitment to recycling. This recycling program helps to reduce the
amount of materials that reach the waste stream and saves landfill
The 2015 Leaf Collection and Recycling Program will
begin Monday, November 9, and will end Saturday, December 19. The 2015
leaf collection effort will consist of two pick up methods:
- Bagged leaf Drop-Off will be offered
city-wide, on Saturdays starting November 21, 2015 at 23 designated
neighborhood locations from 9 AM to 3 PM (with the exception of the
Saturdays following Veteran's Day and Thanksgiving Holidays). For a full
location list CLICK HERE.
- Mechanical leaf collection
will be offered on a designated weekly schedule in areas with a heavy
concentration of leaves. To find out if/when your block is scheduled
for mechanical collection CLICK HERE.
Please note that leaves set out for collection will be picked
up as trash. Residents must drop-off bagged leaves to one of 23
designated neighborhood locations throughout the City.
