ReLeaf Guidelines 

Here are some helpful steps from the Street Department to streamline the leaf collection process:

  • Please rake leaves to the curb line but do not rake leaves into the street, as this will plug the street drains, which could cause flooding during rain.
     
  • Avoid parking on top or in front of leaf piles along curb lines, as this hampers collection crews.
     
  • Do not contaminate leaf piles with sticks, trash, or other debris. To prevent equipment damage, crews cannot collect such piles and property owners will be responsible for their disposal.
     
  • Burning leaves is a violation of City ordinance.
