The City of Iowa City Leaf Vacuum has finished collecting leaves for the 2017 season. 

Crews collected nearly 550 dump truck loads of leaves and made it through all seven collection routes a record six times. 

As of today, Wednesday, Dec. 13, 2017, the program will cease operating so crews can begin the process of winterizing and converting trucks for snow removal. In anticipation of the snowy season, be sure to sign-up to receive snow alerts via text and email at
