Leaf Vacuuming Guidelines:

  • Place leaves along the front lawn edge of the property.
  • Keep leaves away from mailboxes and landscaped areas.
  • Do not place leaves in the street or cover the sidewalk.
  • Loose leaves should be placed at the curb before 7:00 a.m. the Monday of pickup week to ensure pick-up throughout the week. 
As a reminder, please keep leaf piles off of the street. Leaf piles should always be on the curb of your yard - not in the street. Thank you for your cooperation!
