How to Prepare for Leaf Collection

How to Prepare for Leaf Collection
  • Rake leaves into rows rather than piles in the gutter next to the curb
  • Keep rows as close to the curb as possible
  • Keep rows away from trees, hydrants, sign posts, mail boxes, electrical pedestals, or other obstacles
  • Keep all garbage, metal, branches, sticks, and bags out of the rows of leaves
    • If these items are left in the piles there will be disposal charges
  • We will not collect any blue bags that are filled with leaves, yard waste, or garbage
  • Try to rake your leaves when your neighbors do
    • This will prevent our crew from making needless return trips to the same area
    • The more leaves in one area, the more efficient it will be for us to remove the leaves in that area
  • Do not park cars next to leaf rows
    • If we cannot get our equipment to the rows they will have to wait until the next rotation
