When does scheduled leaf collection begin?

Scheduled leaf collection begins Monday, November 29, 2021 (the Monday after Thanksgiving)


When does leaf collection end?

Leaf collection is expected to conclude on December 23, 2021. 


Can leaf collection get delayed?

Yes. Collection is dependent upon weather: we are unable to collect leaves during rain or snow conditions; wet, soggy or frozen leaves can slow down the collection process.  


What is the purpose of our citywide leaf collection service?

While leaf collection is enjoyed as a service to our citizens, the primary purpose of collection is to reduce travel and storm hazards by limiting slick leaves in the street and accumulated leaves in the storm system's inlets and pipes. Additionally, limiting leaves entering our storm system benefits the health of the South River by reducing Nutrient Loading. We appreciate efforts to keep leaves out of the street and storm system and the assistance that effort provides in meeting these goals.

Can I find more information on the website?

Yes. Please refer to the Public Works Page for more information about leaf collection activities.
