Yard Waste Pickup

Rake on Fall Leaves

Eight crews are working six days a week to respond to the tremendous amount of debris created this leaf season.

The Public Works Department Solid Waste Division is working diligently to address our annual leaf season collection. Currently, the Division has eight crews and three street sweepers working six days per week, collecting the nearly 12 million pounds of leaves expected throughout the city this season.

The yard waste crew location will be posted daily until the season ends.
