Leaf collection continues, but not guaranteed everywhere before winter storms

November 26, 2019 12:39 AM

I'm hearing some questions in our area about leaf pickup. Here is the latest information from the City's Streets Division:

  • Streets Division crews will continue collecting leaves/yard waste for as long as the weather allows, but it is so late in the year, they may not be able to get to everyone again before a winter storm hits. 
  • The Streets Division will lose six days of collection due to the Thanksgiving holiday and the subsequent re-assignment of personnel to make up refuse & recycling collection due to the holiday.
  • Many neighborhoods will not see their next yard waste collection until December, or possibly mid-December if weather permits. However, the further we get into December the threat of a snow storm increases.
  • Any leaf piles the Streets Division cannot collect before a significant winter storm hits will be frozen in place until the spring.
  • Drop-off sites are available and they remain on expanded hours until December 9.
  • The drop-off sites that accept yard waste are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd, 4602 Sycamore Ave, and 402 South Point Rd.
  • Expanded drop-off site hours are 7:30am to 4:30pm seven days a week and until 8 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On December 9, winter hours start: 7:30am to 3:00pm Monday to Friday.?
