Spring & Summer Leaf Collection

Spring and Summer Leaf & Fine Yard Waste Collection

Curbside Collection

Leaves and fine yard waste must be at curbside by 7 a.m. on your collection day. Leaves for collection should not be placed in the traveled portion of the roadway where traffic would be impeded. Place leaves at a location away from any objects such as parked cars, low hanging tree limbs, catch basins, or drainpipes. It is important that leaves and waste are not placed in the actual ditch-line to prevent potential flooding caused by such a practice.


Residents are encouraged to retain leaves on their property and compost when possible by implementing a "backyard composting project."
