Beginning in mid October and continuing through December, the department will collect leaves placed along the curbs on main streets. Streets will be cleaned on an ongoing basis during the pickup period. Once a street has been cleaned it will be at least one week until crews return. When raking leaves into the street, maintain an area for water runoff, and keep the catch basins free of leaves to avoid flooding. NO limbs, branches or bags are to be placed in the street with the leaves. The leaf machines are not designed to pick up these items.
