Branch & Leaf Pick-up


Leaf pick-up begins mid-October and runs continuously through December, weather permitting.

The Service Department asks that all leaves be raked to the tree lawn and that piles be free of twigs, grass clippings, and other garden materials. Note that raking of leaves to cul-de-sac islands or into the street is not permitted.

The City's branch pick-up program runs April through November with chipping beginning the first Monday of each month.

The Crews make one complete pass through the City each month. Branches should be piled at the curb with the cut ends facing the street. This helps our crews in their collection efforts while increasing efficiency and worker safety as they operate the chipping equipment. Branches must not be greater than 10 inches in diameter.

Branches can also be cut to 4' lengths or less and bundled to put out next to your trash and recycling carts for Waste Management to remove on Tuesdays throughout the season as an alternative to the monthly chipping program by the city's chipping crews. Limit of 4 bundles per week.
