How do I dispose of my leaves?
Leaves can be disposed of in a number of ways. Rake the leaves to the curb in a long neat pile, approximately 4 feet wide, for Public Works vacuum machines to collect. Please do not place the leaves in the street or on carriage walks or sidewalks. Do not rake grass clippings, sticks, rocks, branches or mud to the curb with your leaves.

These materials clog and damage the equipment used for collecting leaves. If these items are found, the leaves will not be removed. You can also place the leaves in paper yard waste bags for Waste Management to collect with the weekly yard waste pickup. A landscape waste sticker must be affixed or else the bags will not be collected. You may also have your landscaper take the leaves away to a waste site.
