The City also is partnering with Benjamin Lawn and Landscape to offer a group rate for residential curbside leaf removal in our neighborhoods.
The first curbside leaf pickup date is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 31. This voluntary program has two pickup dates. The second date is scheduled on Nov. 28. The cost for this program is $68 for both pickup dates, or you may purchase separately.
Residents taking part of curbside leaf removal should rake their leaves into a long and narrow pile along the curb by 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 31. Crews will vacuum the row of leaves up to six feet into your yard. Please remove rocks, sticks, trash, and other debris. Please also move your vehicles away from the leaf pile on collection day.
