Get Ready for Vacuum Leaf Collection in Your Neighborhood

Crews will complete first passes to vacuum leaves Monday-Saturday, except Thanksgiving Day. Look for yellow signs posted around your neighborhood 3 to 7 days before collection starts.

Rake leaves to the curb the weekend before the posted start date for leaf collection in your neighborhood. If you have contracted lawn services, plan ahead to have leaves raked and piled on the curb. You also may place leaves in biodegradable paper leaf bags for weekly bag collection
