Collecting leaves from the community is a big job! Public Works crews can pick up anywhere from 13,000 to 17,000 cubic yards of leaves a year (a cubic yard is about the size of a washing machine). Staff deliver clean leaves to homes upon request and to community gardens. Anything left over is taken to local recycling companies. Leaves are not taken to local landfills.
The following stats show how many cubic yards of leaves staff have collected and delivered so far this year. The stats are updated in real time.
