Loose Leaf Collection started the week of October 23rd, 2017 on a limited basis and is increasing as needed as the accumulation of leaves become heavier. Loose leaves should be placed in rows or piles at the roadside but NOT in the gutter, street, or open ditch which could cause flooding or blockage of the storm drains.  Raked leaves must be leaves only and not contain any broken glass, rocks, large sticks or other debris including trash that could cause severe damage to the leaf collection equipment and delay pickup. Leaves will not be picked up if those items listed above are mixed in with the leaves.
