Curbside fall leaf and yard waste collection begins on October 5.

Our collection crews will begin on October 5th in the Monday refuse collection area. We anticipate the first round of collection to move thorugh the city quickly since the trees have not dropped many leaves yet. Therefore, if you have leaves and yard waste ready for collection, please pile them at the curb and our crews will collect them as soon as they are in your area.

Residents will receive multiple collections. Please check back to this website for future updates and collection day estimates.


Leaves and yardwaste can also be brought to the drop off sites.

TIP: If you would like to minimize the amount of time your yard waste and leaf pile is at the curb, check the map for the refuse collection area a day ahead of your own. When that map is colored blue, it means crews are currently collecting from that area, and therefore it is advisable to get your material curbside at that point. This method ensures your material is ready prior to crews arriving in your neighborhood, and will shorten the amount of time the pile is on the terrace.

East Side Residents can also bring their material to the yard waste drop-off sites.

Maps are updated daily during collection periods. This page was updated on 09/29/15 at 12:10 p.m.
