2014-2015 Leaf Collection Season Underway

2014 leaf collection schedule

Residential street sweeping ended for the season on October 31st, and now the Department of Public Works is transitioning into fall leaf collection mode.  The 2014-2015 leaf collection season began on Monday, November 3rd, but don’t panic. As will past years, leaf collection begins in the area west of 16th Street in Ward 1, and there are two opportunities to get the leaves out for collection.

According to DPW, this year, leaf collection runs from November 3, 2014 through January 10, 2015. Residents should note that the same crews that collect leaves also remove snow, so leaf collection may be interrupted for snow removal duties. Leaves will be removed from neighborhood treeboxes at least twice, following the schedule that can be found on the image at the right and at the Find the Leaf Collection Schedule for Your Neighborhood available on the DPW Website. DPW asks residents to place their leaves in the treebox space the Sunday before each collection cycle.

Loose leaves raked into the treeboxes will be composted.  Bagged leaves placed in the treebox space or where trash and recycling are collected will not be composted.

During the last two weeks of leaf collection season (December 28-January 10), DPW will collect holiday trees and other greenery from residents whose trash is collected by DPW.  Trees and greenery should be placed where the resident’s trash is collected. Please remove all ornaments and lights and do not put the tree(s) and greenery in a bag.

The 2014-2015 leaf collection brochure is also available online if you would like to see the collection schedule for the entire city.
