Fall Leaf Collection

2021 Collection Schedule: (subject to change)

First and second rounds of leaf collection have been completed

  • ALL STREETS WEST OF WILLARD AVENUE:  Additional collection scheduled for the week of November 16 through November 20.
  • ALL STREETS EAST OF WILLARD AVENUE:   Additional collection scheduled for the week of November 22 through November 29.
  • Depending on weather conditions and other unforeseen circumstances, crews may enter into a section ahead of schedule or remain in an area longer than anticipated, use the above schedule as a guideline only. Please keep in mind, an early snowfall hinders our collection efforts and residents are advised to rake leaves to the curb as soon as possible. We ask for our patience as we attempt to complete the leaf collection program in a timely and efficient manner.
  • Residents may also bring leaves to the landfill/transfer station on Saturdays and Sundays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Proof of residency required. 

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.
