Effective October 2004, leaves may no longer be raked into the street for the DPW to "scoop-up" as in previous years.
[More info and larger map]


2005 Leaf Collection

The DPW will continue the service of curb-side leaf collection.

Leaves may be raked into the street beginning October 15th and continue until December 1st.

Leaves may be raked to the curb -- but not within 10 feet of storm drains.

The DPW requests that the leaves be raked off the top of the curb and fully into the street.

It is advised that providing a drainage space between the leaf pile and the curb will allow a better flow of rain water to storm drains.

Leaves may also be bagged in paper sacks or in upright containers. Leaves in plastic bags are not acceptable.

Leaves are accepted at the DPW recycling depot at any time in paper sacks or upright containers. ###
