Leaves should be raked to the edge of the street before the first scheduled pickup day. If crews pick up all of the leaves on your street on the first scheduled pickup day, they do not return on the second day.
Crews will pick up leaves from the edge of a city street which the residence faces. If a residence is on a corner of two streets, each street may not be in the same work zone. Crews do not go onto private property such as along driveways or behind houses to pick up leaves.
Leaves must not be placed on sidewalks, in the street or gutter lines, around fire hydrants, mailboxes, guywires or parked vehicles and must not obstruct drainage structures. The placement of leaves on sidewalks, in streets or gutter lines, around fire hydrants or in a manner to obstruct drainage structures violates City Ordinances and could result in civil fines. In addition, placing leaves on sidewalks, in streets or gutter lines, around fire hydrants, mailboxes, guywires or parked vehicles could cause accidents to vehicles or pedestrians resulting in personal liability.
Leaves will not be picked up from commercial properties, in private subdivisions, along private roadways in alleys or in mobile home parks.
Leaf piles must be free of any debris including tree limbs, rocks, household trash, discarded furniture, wheels/tires or any other debris that may cause damage to equipment or injury to crews. Do not bag leaves.
