Our fall leaf collection begins October 14, 2019 and runs through Friday, November 22, 2019.
During this collection you can rake leaves, small yard waste and garden debris into the gutter on the Sunday night prior to your collection week.
For customers in Zone 1; beginning Sunday, October 13 and then every other Sunday through November 10.
For customers in Zone 2; beginning Sunday, October 20 and then every other Sunday through November 17.
Branch and brush piles must be kept separate from leaf and small yard waste piles. Branches and brush must be cut down to four-foot lengths and bundled with biodegradable twine and not exceed 45 pounds. Max branch width is three-inch diameter. No containers, except lawn and leaf bags, will be collected. Bundled branches will be picked with a claw. Small waste & leaves will be pushed into piles. Please keep piles low and close to the curb to help protect children and not block motorists’ view.
Leaves on the following streets will be pushed into piles on side streets as often as possible, but due to heavy traffic, residents are encouraged to transport leaves to the yard waste sites rather than rake them into the gutter: Ballard Rd, College Ave, Oneida St, Calumet St, Wisconsin Ave, Richmond St, Newberry St, Meade St, Mason St (north of Prospect Ave) and Lawe St (from College Ave to Wisconsin Ave)
The Whitman Yard Waste site is open through November 25. The Glendale Yard Waste Site is open year-round. Both sites are open on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
If weather permits, there will be one additional non-scheduled pass through the city starting November 24. Winter may come early, and snow may prevent us from doing this additional pick up. If weather prevents the City from completing the leaf and yard waste pick up after your final collection week, residents are responsible for leaf and yard waste disposal. No additional special pick ups will be scheduled. Yard debris can be taken to the City yard waste site, free of charge. It is crucial to our leaf pick up operations to be able to work during the night. For that reason, starting on Sunday, October 13, the Police Department will not grant permission for overnight parking all week in the zone scheduled for collection. Vehicles that are illegally parked overnight (between the hours of 2:00 a.m.-5:00 a.m.) will be subject to ticketing and towing.
