are leaves picked up?
A: Leaf collection starts
Oct. 1 and usually runs through April 31. Pick up is normally
weekly to start off but as the more volume of leaves fall,
pick up is less frequent, 3-4 weeks.
Please keep in mind that we do put additional trucks and personnel out during leaf season, however we have +/-8,500 households in the city limits and it does take time to go up and down each street. It may take us three or four weeks to get back to your house. Last year it took one truck all day just to clean up one street. Also be sure to separate leaves and grass from the brush and limbs. They are picked up by different trucks and taken to different locations.
