From the city's Bureau of Maintenance:

City leaf collection will resume on Monday, Nov. 25, and will make one final sweep of the City for leaf collection.

We ask residents take advantage of the current snow thaw this weekend to place leaves in the parkways near the curb line if they want the City to collect leaves.

Please, do not pile leaves around sign posts, trees, fire hydrants or light poles, this prevents the equipment from being able to collect the leaves.

Residents can also bring leaves to the yard waste station on Law Street (Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Dec. 14th. The yard waste station is closed Thanksgiving Day.

Press release:

Citywide leaf collection will begin Oct. 29 and will continue until Nov. 30.

Residents of the following streets can rake leaves to the parkway, but do not place in the street; these streets are Clinton Street, Oak Street, Main Street (including East and West Main Street), Pearl Street, South Main Street (between Oak Street and Walnut Street),Walnut Street, Richmond Ave (between Oak Street and Prospect Avenue). If your street has a route number (i.e. Route 5, Route 33, Route 63 and Route 98), then please keep leaves out of the roadway.

All other streets are asked to rake leaves close to the curb line, taking care not to block storm drainage structures/catch basins or not to block travel-way of streets.

Leaf operations typically have one crew on the Northside working from Grandview Terrace moving west, north of Main Street, and a second crew on the Southside beginning on River Street moving East in areas South of Main Street. A third crew will work using a vacuum along main roads and numbered routes. It takes about two weeks to go through the entire city.

Any resident with leaves can also bring them to the yard waste station until it closes for the season on Dec. 8. Beginning Nov. 5, the Yard Waste Station hours will be adjusted to 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The Yard Waste Station is closed on Thursday, Nov. 22, for Thanksgiving.

Important Information About Leaf Collection:

  • Leaf piles must be clear of sticks and other debris;
  • Leaf piles must be clear of all animal waste – if animal waste is found in the piles, they will not be picked up;
  • Grass clippings, flower pottings, branches, pumpkins cannot be picked up and residents may bring those items to the Yard Waste Station on Law Street (which will be open through Dec. 8);
  • Leaves should not block traffic;
  • Leaves should not be piled near intersection corners. This causes sight issues for motorists/bicyclists/pedestrians;
  • Keep leaf piles clear of drainage ways and catch basins. Blocked drainage leads to localized flooding;
  • Leaves should not be piled around mailboxes, power poles, fences, fire hydrants or other obstacles.  Do not park on leaf piles. The heat from a vehicle exhaust system could start a fire;
  • Do not wait to get your leaves out. We will normally collect leaves twice within the month of leaf collection;
  • If it is snowing, we plow first. If it continues to snow, then leaf operations will be suspended;
  • There is no leaf pickup in the spring.

Press release from the city's Bureau of Maintenance:

To the residents and property owners of the following streets:

  • Eleanor Place (south side of the street).
  • Margaret Place (both sides of the street).
  • Trumbull Parkway from East Main Street to Chase Park (both sides of the street). Lehigh Avenue from Ellicott Street to the CSX overpass (west side of the street). Clifton Avenue from James Street to Ellicott Street (west side of the street).
  • New York Place (west side of street).
  • Verona Avenue from Richmond Avenue to Hillcrest Drive (east side of the street).

The properties in the above listed areas will undergo a sidewalk replacement project in the month of September. The work will involve sidewalk replacements as needed, curb ramp installation and sidewalk passing zones (where there are four foot walks).

If the sidewalk replacements go through a driveway, the contractor (Master’s Edge) will provide the residents notice that the will not have driveway access for up to a week. This is so the sidewalks can set up and cure to provide strength for vehicular traffic.

During that time period, if you have lost driveway access, those residents are asked to park legally on the street. We have requested the Police Department to suspend the overnight parking ban for the impacted properties while this work is ongoing.

Work is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, Sept. 4, in the area of Eleanor Place/ Trumbull Parkway/ Margaret Place. Work will then move to the area of Lehigh Avenue and Clifton Avenue. Work will conclude on Verona Avenue and New York Place.

This is weather dependent work, so some delays can be expected, but it is intent to be complete with this project by late September or early October.

Contact the Bureau of Maintenance and ask to speak to the Superintendent at 345-6400, opt. 1, if you have any questions.
