Iowa City’s Streets Division is anticipating that leaf crews will be able to complete one and a half to two zones per day for the first few weeks of the leaf vacuum program.

Crews will not go back for missed leaf piles. Leaves need to be accessible and free of parked cars. To guarantee pickup, have all of your leaves at the curb by 7 a.m. on the first day your zone is scheduled.

Predicted zone schedule

  • Tuesday, Oct. 16: Starting Zone 7 & entering Zone 1
  • Wednesday, Oct. 17: Completing Zone 1 & entering Zones 2 &3
  • Thursday, Oct. 18: Completing Zone 3 & entering Zone 4
  • Friday, Oct. 19: Completing Zone 4 & and entering Zone 5
  • Monday, Oct. 22: Completing Zone 5 & entering Zone 6
