Storm Debris Removal and Leaf Pick Up Information

Update: Due to the current winter storm, leaf and storm debris removal has been temporarily suspended while crews respond to snow and ice.

Due to continued storm response, our regular leaf collection and delivery program for 2016/2017 has changed in the following ways: 

 

PICK UP
While leaf pick up will continue to take place, the previously published schedule listing specific dates for round one and round two pick up no longer applies. Public Works Crews will be moving through the community just one time to simultaneously picking up all leaves left in the street and storm debris from publicly owned trees. 
 

IS IT TOO LATE TO PUT MY LEAVES OUT?
To confirm whether we’ve already come through your neighborhood, please check out our interactive Storm and Leaf Debris Progress Map that shows where we’ve already collected leaves and debris. If you confirm we haven’t been to your street yet, please put your leaves out now. This map is updated daily. Once we have been through your street, please do not place any additional debris or leaves in the street.

   
IMPORTANT REMINDERS
Homeowners are responsible for cleaning up and disposing of the debris from their privately owned trees. Please do not mix private debris with public tree debris and leaves. Christmas trees should also not be placed in the right of way. Thank you. 
 
Please remember to place leaves in the street without obstructing bike lanes or traffic. Also keep curbs, gutters and catch basins clear to prevent flooding.  
  
LEAF DELIVERY CANCELLED
No deliveries of leaves will take place. Our apologies, but leaves have gotten comingled with storm debris. 
 

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding!
