Leaf Collection

The City of Merriam does not have a leaf pickup program. With changing seasons comes the task of disposing of leaves. The City appreciates the good efforts of residents to maintain their yards and neighborhoods.

While the City does have a street sweeper to clean and maintain the street right-of-way, the City does not provide any program to pick up leaves from residents’ yards or from streets where leaves have accumulated. Leaves can clog the public storm sewers, and will prevent proper drainage.

Residents are encouraged to find other methods of leaf disposal other than pushing them into the public right-of-way. Fines may be sanctioned for such actions. Here is a website that can help you with leaves and yard waste.

Thank you for your continued help with the leaves.
