With the additional leaves that have fallen, the Streets Division has seen more leaf piles over this past week. As a result, it has been taking us more time to complete each zone. We are doing our best to estimate progress. Please check back daily as schedule adjustments are likely.
Leaf crews began the fifth & final pass of the City on Thursday, November 16th in Zone #5. Crews will not return to any of the zones once collection has been completed. Additionally, crews will not return for piles raked after the area has been collected or for piles not collected due to parked cars.
Please keep in mind, the continuation of the program is always weather permitting.
Crews will not go back for missed piles of leaves. Please make sure your leaves are accessible to crews and free of parked cars. To guarantee pickup, please have all of your leaves at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on the 1st day your zone is scheduled.
Tuesday, Nov. 28 – Entering Zone #3 (Final Pass)
Wednesday, Nov. 29 – Completing Zone #3 + Entering Zone #4 (Final Pass)
Thursday, Nov. 30 – Collecting in Zone #4
Friday, Dec. 1st – Completing Zone #4
