The Town of Greenwich Department of Public Works will begin the annual Leaf Collection Program on November 6, 2023, in only Section 3, and all other sections to begin on November 13, 2023. Weather permitting, leaves will be collected Monday to Saturday, with two leaf collections per numeric section. The program is expected to finish in mid-December.
Residents are asked to pile leaves near the street but off the road and sidewalks, as this can pose as a safety hazard for pedestrians and bicyclists and can negatively impact stormwater drainage. This program is offered to half-acre or less residential properties (building zone R-20) on public roads.
There will be no leaf collection on the day prior to Veterans Day, November 10, 2023, Veterans Day, November 11, 2023, Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2023, and the day after Thanksgiving, November 25, 2023. Timing and schedule for leaf pickup may be adjusted and subject to change due to unforeseen events, including adverse weather conditions. Residents can find out when their street is scheduled through the 24-hour leaf collection hotline at 203-618-7698 or by visiting www.greenwichct.gov/257/Leaf-Collection.
