During the month of December, crews pick up only leaves and do not pick up any green waste (prunings, trimmings, sticks, branches, etc.). Leaf collection crews work 7 days a week, moving as quickly as possible so they can service more neighborhoods throughout the City.
There is no set schedule or appointments for leaf pick up. Please review the information below when preparing for leaf pick ups.
Leaves must be piled 18 inches away from the curb to allow rain to pass through to the storm drains. Do not place leaves on or near the storm drain.
The street sweeper cannot pickup piles of leaves.
Once the crew has come down your street to collect leaves, do not rake or sweep leaves and remaining debris into a pile until after the street sweeper has passed by on your street.
If you sweep up small debris left after street collection, put it into your organic container.
Please adhere to the following restrictions during December:
Do not place your leaves in the alley during the month of December. Leaves will be collected from the street only.
No large green waste will be collected in December. Large Green Waste collection runs from January to November. Check the look up tool for pick up days.
