Fall Leaf Collection

Fall Leaf Collection

Each fall, the Town provides bulk loose leaf collection to its citizens. The Town is divided into areas and each area is serviced on alternating weeks. Residents are asked to follow these simple rules when raking leaves:

  • Rake leaves to the edge of the road pavement, but not into the street
  • Do not block drainage ditches
  • Do not put rocks, branches, or other foreign debris in the leaf piles
  • Leaves placed out after loose leaf collection has ended (usually the end of December) will need to be bagged

Once the crew has passed a particular house or block, they will not return until the next scheduled time. To receive leaf collection at times other than when scheduled, residents may put leaves in plastic bags. We make every effort to stick to the printed schedule. However, weather or other factors may cause us to deviate from the schedule. We will collect an entire area before moving to the next one.
