[ARCHIVED] 2016 Leaf Pickup Extended

Leaf pickup has been has been extended.  Weather permitting, December 2, 2016 will be the final day for pickup.  There will be no pickup Thursday, November 24th or Friday, November 25 in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.  Please make sure to get your leaves out by 7 am on your street sweeping day.  No leaf pickup is scheduled after December 2.


Streets with a parking lane (you can park in front of your residence), leaves should be raked into the parking lane the night before your pickup. 

Streets without a parking lane, leaves should be placed on the terrace (grassy area between the sidewalk and the curb).

There is a residential NO PARKING BAN from 7 AM to 3 PM on the day of your pickup, which again is the same day as your Street Sweeping Parking Ban.  Vehicles parked on the street during that time will be ticketed.  This is being implemented to facilitate picking up the leaves much faster.  To find a map of the leaf pickup sections, go to and click on the fall leaf pickup on the main page.

Leaf pickup ends on December 2, 2016. 

No brush or garden waste will be picked up.  Residents may take brush and garden waste to the Manitowoc County compost sites or contact a private hauler.  For information about the compost sites call 683-4333.

Safety for residents and crews is important.  If you see crews picking up leaves, please give them room.  Large equipment backs up frequently and we want everyone to be safe.
