Please be advised, the leaf schedule will be updated daily and subject to change at any time. If you would like to receive schedule updates via e-mail, visit  and subscribe under “Service Notices.”

Please check back daily as schedule adjustments are extremely likely. We have been seeing more leaf piles out over the last week which, in turn, has been slowing down our progress. We are doing our best to estimate progress.

Please Note – We began the final leaf collection pass of the City on Tuesday, November 15th in Route #5. As we finish the final pass, we will evaluate the weather & determine if collection will continue thereafter. We urge you to not hesitate in getting your leaves out to the curb.

Thursday, November 17 – Completing Route #5 & Entering Route #6 (4th pass)

Friday, November 18 – Completing Route #6 & entering Route #7 (4th pass)

Saturday, November 19 – Completing Route #7 & entering Route #1 (4th pass)

Monday, November 21 – Completing Route #1 & entering Route #2 (4th pass)

Tuesday, November 22 – Completing Route #2 & entering Route #3 (4th pass)

Please Note - When a partial route is scheduled, all leaves in the entire route should be ready for collection by 7:00 a.m. on the first day the route is scheduled in order to guarantee pickup.

If you are unsure of which route you are in please see the flyer that was included in your September City utility bill. Please make sure to turn the flyer over because there is important information on both sides of the flyer.
