Leaf Collection - 2021

Fall-Forecast-Foliage-i859054662-1184x630Leaf Collection Program 

2021 


Leaf Collection is to be provided to all properties on PUBLIC STREETS ONLY in building zones R-20 HALF ACRE AND BELOW. The Leaf Collection Program is conducted for a 6 to 8 week period from November to Mid-December, and may be adjusted, at the discretion of the Town, in the event of adverse weather conditions.  Weather permitting, the Town will provide two (2) collections per numeric section during the Leaf Collection Program. When a section has received its second collection, all material placed thereafter is in violation and it will be incumbent upon the residents to remove all residual leaf piles.  


Residents in the collection areas are to rake LEAVES ONLY into piles at the shoulder, off the pavement of the road. Residents are requested to avoid raking leaves onto the pavement, sidewalks, catch basin grates and open channels, which cause drainage and flooding problems during periods of rain.  Sticks, branches and garden refuse will not be collected.   


To help keep leaves under control, we encourage residents to place leaves in BIODEGRADABLE PAPER BAGS and place them for collection at the curb. NO PLASTIC BAGS OF LEAVES WILL BE COLLECTED.  We also encourage residents to mulch their leaves and leave them in place, where appropriate.
