ReLeaf Collection Program

The 2016 Spring ReLeaf program runs Monday, April 4 through Friday, April 15.

The Spring ReLeaf program will be a call in service for 2016. Residents must call in between Monday, March 28 through Friday April 15 for service to occur.

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.
