Residential loose leaf collection will be offered from October 16 – December 15, 2023 Leaves will be collected curbside the same day as trash collection. Leaves need to be curbside by 7:00 a.m.  We are requesting your cooperation by not placing leaves in the street, as they clog the storm drains when it rains, causing flooding of the streets.

Leaves will not be collected if they are in bags.  If you choose to bag your yard waste material, you may bring it to the compost site located at 720 S. Mapleton Street, next door to the Department of Public Works, and dump out your bags.  Your bags are then reusable.
