As the leaves are falling, please be mindful that it is against city ordinance to rake or blow leaves into the street. Blowing leaves into city streets may get them out of your yard, but they eventually end up somewhere. For municipal streets, it’s usually in the stormwater drain where they clog pipes and result in street flooding. Instead of blowing leaves into the street, please place your leaves in biodegradable, paper, yard waste bags or 35-gallon containers labeled with a compost sticker (50lb limit). The yard waste truck will not stop to look in unmarked containers. Keep in mind, that brush and limbs greater than 2 inches in diameter must be in bundles no longer than 3 feet in length, and not exceeding a total of 18 inches in diameter.

Yard waste includes leaves, lawn cuttings, and shrub and tree trimmings. Dirt is not considered yard waste and will not be accepted. Yard waste is collected weekly on the same day as your scheduled household refuse, from the first Monday in April to early December, depending on weather conditions.

Yard waste collection ends on December 1, 2023. Compost stickers are available at City Hall and DPS.
