Collection is made weekly on your recycling collection day, however there may be a one to two-day delay during busy periods. Place leaves at the street curb by 7 a.m. on your recycling day. Leaves placed in alleys or mews will not be collected.

Loose Leaf Collection Guidelines
- Collection is suspended on Thanksgiving & Christmas.
- Collection is suspended during inclement weather. During periods of potential storm activity, please delay leaf raking until after the effects of the storm have passed.
- Please remove limbs, rocks or other heavy objects from leaf piles.
- Never drive across or park over a leaf pile.
- Do not allow children to play in leaves along the street.
- Do not rake leaves into gutters or streets. Rake them into grassy areas behind the curb line to allow water to flow into catch basins. This will help prevent the basins from clogging and will help prevent street flooding. Assistance moving leaves already in gutters to grassy areas would be greatly appreciated.
- The burning of leaves is not allowed in the City.
