Latest Leaf Collection Program Updates

Leaves in Dark news flash

12/9/22 Update

The Residential Leaf Collection Program’s third and final round of pick up throughout the entire City is complete. Crews also did an extra pass to make sure everything was collected. The leaf vacuum trailers are now stored for the season and snow plows are being installed on our trucks. This year’s collection was the largest in the history of the program - 20,325 cubic yards of leaves were collected! Thank you to our fantastic leaf crews who worked hard through the rain, shine, and snow to take care of as many leaves as possible.

12/5/22 Update

Last week, crews completed the final pick up in the Northeast and Southwest quadrants. Crews began the final collection in the Southeast and Northwest quadrants on Friday and anticipate finishing up by the end of the week. Thank you for your patience! We are in the home stretch.

11/28/22 Update

The second round of leaf collection continues in the Northwest and Southeast quadrants. We are down two crews today due to a water main break. A third and final pick up is still planned for all quadrants, barring the arrival of full on winter weather. The third and final pick up is anticipated to begin later this week for the Northeast and Southwest quadrants and the week of December 6 for the Southeast and Northwest quadrants. Updates will be sent out if this changes.

11/21/22 Update

Crews have completed pick up in the Southwest quadrant but were unable to complete the Northeast quadrant last week due to dealing with winter weather. The Northeast quadrant is expected to be completed today. Tomorrow and into Wednesday, crews will begin the second pickup in the Northwest and Southeast quadrants. Collection will then resume after Thanksgiving on Friday and Saturday. Thank you for your patience as we continue to catch up.

11/17/22 Update

What a day! Despite having to transition five trucks from leaf vacuums to salt trucks/snow plows to deal with the snow this morning and pulling four guys from leaf crew to assist with a water main break, our leaf crews are still on track to finish the Northeast and Southwest quadrants on Saturday. We still anticipate being able to start the the second collection for Northwest and Southeast quadrants on Monday, November 21. Thank you for bearing with us as our crews work hard to finish this round of leaf collection.

11/16/22 Update

Crews are still picking up leaves for the second round of collection in the Northeast and Southwest quadrants. They are working as quickly as possible and well into the evening hours to catch up. However, due to the large volume of leaves, these quadrants are not expected to be completed until the end of the week, putting us at a week behind schedule. The second round of pick up for the Northwest and Southeast quadrants is anticipated to begin on Monday, November 21, barring any other unforeseen circumstances. Thank you for your patience!

Did you know? In the 16-year history of the leaf collection program, we set a record last week for the largest amount of leaves picked up in one week - more than 5,075 cubic yards!  For the entire season to date, we have collected about 13,000 cubic yards. Our current season record collection was just under 20,000 cubic yards in 2020.
