RE: Spring Leaf pick-up


This information supersedes any previously published instructions prior to the dates listed on this form.

NEWPlease help us by placing your leaves on the edge of the parkway/yard, rather than out in the street.

The Maintenance Department will begin its Spring 2024 leaf pick up every Tuesday of the month starting Tuesday, April 2, 9, 16, 23, and 30. Please call or visit the City’s Website or Maintenance Facebook page for any changes.  Any leaves placed at the curb before or after the dates listed above, will be the responsibility of the resident to discard. The city does have a spot for you to take and dump your leaves if you choose to rake them up earlier. Call for instructions. Please follow the bullet point listed below NOTE: TAKE OUT ALL STICKS/FOREIGN OBJECTS OR WE WILL NOT PICK UP.

Please note:

  • Leaves must be placed in a continuous row at the parkway.
  • Only leaves are accepted. Please do not place grass clippings, yard waste sticks, rocks, trash, or any other foreign objects. These items can damage the collection equipment. If such waste is placed on the parkway, city crew will refuse collection until the matter is taken care of.
  • Do not park vehicles, trailers, semis, or any other piece of equipment/vehicle on or immediately next to the leaf pile.
  • Leaves will not be picked up in alleys with the exception of Willow Alley, Huggins Ln. & Prairie Alley
  • Please do not cover storm sewer grate with leaves.

The city has a spot located by the sewer plant where yard waste may be disposed of. Contact the Maintenance office for instructions at 815-493-6832
