Curbside Leaf Vacuuming


Leaf Vacuuming will begin November 6, 2017 and runs through January 5, 2018. Only bagged leaves will be collected on MONDAYS with yard waste collection prior to November 6 and after January 5.

Public Works crews generally vacuum leaves counterclockwise through town as follows:
Ward 2, Ward 1, Ward 3, Ward 5, Ward 4, Ward 7, Ward 6.

A tentative November schedule will be posted to the public works calendar in late October. The tentative December schedule will be posted in late November. Please note the schedule is tentative and subject to change without notice. We endeavor to vacuum each street as many times as possible--weather, holidays, and other factors sometimes allow/cause the crews to progress faster or slower than expected. The schedule will be adjusted based on the actual progress of the leaf collection crews. Please work with us.

Questions about changes to the collection schedule should be directed to the Public Works office.

DO's and DONT's

  • DO check the public works calendar and homepage periodically for leaf collection updates.

  • Do NOT rake or blow leaves into the street. Leaf piles in the street reduces on-street parking and narrows the roadway creating a hazard to vehicles and pedestrians. They may also cause a flooding hazard and make snow plowing much more difficult in the event of snow.

  • DO make sure there are NO rocks, sticks, metal, etc. in your leaf piles.

  • Residents and contractors are asked to ensure there are only leaves in their plies. Other debris damages the collection equipment and slows the collection process.

  • Do NOT expect crews to back track to collect leaves raked to the curb after they have been past your home.
