General Information:

The leaf collection program operates during the months of November and December and consists of 24 full and part time employees including Parks and Grounds personnel.

  • Over 14,000 cubic yards of leaves are collected and processed each year.
  • Leaves are collected curbside on all Town roads, then transported to the Town Landfill for processing.

Leaf Collection Guidelines:

  • The Town will make at least two passes through each street (weather permitting).
  • Rake leaves to the front of your property (adjacent to the street) as soon as possible. Crews and collection schedules vary due to weather conditions.
  • Do not block sidewalks or rake leaves into the street.
  • Leaves in barrels, plastic bags, cardboard boxed or mixed with branches, sticks, household trash or any foreign matter will not be picked up.
  • State law requires leaves to be collected separately from the trash. Do not put leaves in your rubbish or recycling containers as they will not be picked up.
  • Residents may bring leaves to the landfill on Saturdays and Sundays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 1st through December 31st (proof of residency required).

The success of the Leaf Collection program is greatly dependent on the weather. Your patience and cooperation is greatly appreciated.llection
