Prepare for Leaf Collection

How to Prepare for Leaf Collection


  • Avoid mixing rocks and sticks with leaves. They may damage collection machinery.
  • Do not place brush in leaf piles as it may clog machinery.
  • Do not rake leaves onto the street or curbs.
  • Please park cars in your driveway on collection day to help increase the efficiency of the leaf-loading truck.
  • Rake and pile leaves in the grass-plot area between the curb and sidewalk.
  • To help minimize storm drainage system clogging, please clear or remove any leaves that may have accumulated on the top of the storm drain or catch basins in front of your home.
  • Warn children not to play in leaf piles on streets or near curbs to protect them from injury from unsuspecting motorists.
