Leaves will be picked up on your street sweeping day beginning October 1st through November 19th. We expect the bulk of leaf pickup to be October 4th through November 19th.
If you have a parking lane in front of your residence, you may place your leaves in the parking lane the evening before your street sweeping day. Please make sure you do not place leaves near or over catch basins. If you do not have a parking lane, then you must continue to place your leaves on the terrace.
Grass can be cleaned up when cutting and more easily kept out of the street. Leaves fall fast over a short period of time and many naturally fall into the street, all of which need to be picked up. When your leaves are placed in the street they will be picked up faster reducing the amount that would make it into the storm sewer and ultimately the lake and river.
