Fall Curbside Leaf Collection All November
City crews collect leaf bags after emptying their trucks from their daily trash route. Often this is done late afternoon to early evening the same day.
Leaves must be placed in large, paper biodegradable leaf bags. Think giant brown bags. Residents can purchase these bags at most hardware stores and some grocery stores.
Remember, it is illegal to dispose of yard waste such as fall leaves in storm drains or onto any public property such as empty lots.
As always, residents may dispose of the leaves through home composting or by bringing the leaves to the Riverside Recycling facility (910 Riverside Street). There is a small fee, but residents can use their e-card within the limits of the program.
