Fall Leaf Collection begins the middle of October and will continue through mid December, weather permitting. The Street Department has a regular route starting on the east end of town and working west until the entire city is serviced; then, the department starts their route over again. Please rake leaves to the curb for collection. Leaves should be placed in a narrow pile on the city easement, within 5 feet of the street.
Calling when yard work is complete is not necessary due to the fact that we follow a schedule and will be by as soon as possible.
- Please do not rake leaves into streets, ditches, or drainage swales as they will block storm drains.
- Do not put leaves in cans or plastic bags.
- We will not return for leaf piles passed due to vehicle obstruction.
- Leaf piles should be free of rocks, sticks, bricks, garbage, and other foreign objects.
- Leaves should not be placed by mailboxes, power line guide wires, or utility poles.
- No leaves or leaf bags will be picked up from alleyways.
On Nov 25th the leaf machines will make their final pass through the City. We ask that all residents have their leaf piles raked to the curb for the final collection.
