Each year in the fall, the City assists the citizens with the disposal of leaves through an annual collection program. Leaves are vacuumed up Monday – Friday for four weeks excluding Veterans Day and Thanksgiving holidays. Before and after these assigned weeks, place your leaves in a biodegradable bag for assigned Wednesday pickup, or you can bring them to the Recycling Convenience Center for disposal in the "Yard debris" area.
