Leaf collection underway - online app shows crew location

October 20, 2016

Town leaf collection is currently underway. Our crews will be in your neighborhood approximately every two weeks to remove loose leaf piles at the edge of roadways. To see where our leaf collection crews are working, please click HERE to use our Leaf Collection application. It will tell you when crews will be in your neighborhood.

PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS, YARD DEBRIS COLLECTION (SCHEDULED WEEKLY DAY PER QUADRANT) AND LEAF COLLECTION (ROLLING SCHEDULE PER ONLINE APP) ARE SEPARATE PROCESSES. Town crews will also continue to pick up yard debris every week on your collection day through December 2 if it is placed in a bag/container and separated from your leaf piles. We ask that you keep leaves and yard debris separate, as yard debris can damage our leaf vacuum or injury to a crew member. You can find your yard debris collection day with our new online Yard Debris Collection map.

To help us remove your leaves as quickly as possible, please:

  • Place loose leaf piles at the edge of the road but not in it. Leaves in the road can become a traffic hazard, especially in windy or rainy weather, and can clog storm water drains and drainage areas, causing flooding.
  • Separate all sticks, brush, yard clippings and other debris into reusable containers or paper bags. This allows recycling of all materials and helps avoid damage to our leaf vacuum or injury to our crew members.
  • During this time, sticks, brush and other debris must be placed in bags or containers in order for Town crews to collect it. This is because in the fall our trucks that pick up lose debris in spring and summer are being used for leaf collection. We’ll be picking up sticks and brush through December 2, but please remember it must be in bags or containers.
  • Don’t pile leaves around fire hydrants. Covering hydrants can prevent firefighters from finding them when every second counts. Hidden hydrants are also dangerous for those picking up the leaves as they may be struck, causing injury to crew members or damage to equipment.
