A free leaf collection for residents who live within city limits will take place on November 4-6 and again on December 2-4, on your regular refuse collection day. Leaves must be kept separated from other yard waste and placed at the curb in clearly marked cans, cardboard boxes, or Kraft paper bags. Cans and boxes will be left on the parkway following collection. Although leaves may be placed in marked cans, please be aware that a combination of precipitation and low temperatures may cause the contents to freeze. Frozen cans cannot be emptied by our service provider.
