Leaf and yard waste pick ups are at 2 week intervals from October 8 through November 16, 2018.
Rake leaves, small yard and garden debris into the gutter or to the edge of the pavement on the Sunday night prior to your pick up week. For residents in Zone 1 beginning Sunday, October 7 and then every other Sunday through November 4, 2018. For residents in Zone 2 beginning Sunday, October 14 and then every other Sunday through November 11, 2018.
NEW THIS YEAR: Branches and brush must be cut down to 4 foot lengths and bundled with biodegradable twine not to exceed 45 pounds per bundle. Place these bundles in a separate pile away from the leaf piles. We are asking for your help in keeping the branches separate this year as the leaves will be used for composting and farm field fertilizer and the branches will be used as wood chip material in mulch.
Yard waste may be in lawn and leaf paper bags, but it is not required for this collection. We will NOT pick containers, barrels or plastic bags.
As a safety precaution, please keep piles low, so children are not hidden from motorists view and keep the piles close to the curb, so as not to interfere with traffic.
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. The Whitman Yard Waste Site is open through November 19. The Glendale (Full Service) Yard Waste Site is open year round. Both sites are open Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

If weather permits, there will be one additional non-scheduled pass through the City starting November 19. 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 scheduled collection week, residents are responsible for leaf and yard waste disposal. No additional special pick ups will be scheduled.
It is crucial to our leaf pick up operations to be able to work during the night. For this reason, starting on Sunday, October 7, the Appleton 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 am - 5:00 am) will be subject to ticketing and towing.
More information can be found on "My Property Info" for fall leaf collection dates specific to your address.
