If your new year’s resolution includes clearing out any remaining leaves, you’re in luck. Public Works crews will start their second round of the Leaf Collection and Delivery Program during the first week of 2019.
“As we finish up our first round through the city, people can help us by using the weekend and New Year holiday to safely pile any remaining leaves by the curb,” said Damon Joyner, Public Works Surface Maintenance Supervisor. “We’ll start the new year by going back through the community a second time to clear any remaining leaf piles.”
Requests for leaf delivery will be accepted through January 4, 2019, and will be filled if adequate leaves are available.
Public Works crews started this year’s leaf collection and delivery program in mid-November. This year brought an early and larger leaf drop, which created more work and slowed crews.
“Despite the heavier workload, we still expect to be finished with leaf pick up before the end of January,” said Joyner. “We appreciate everyone’s patience as we continue to finish our first round.”
The Leaf Collection and Delivery Program is part of the City’s stormwater program. Picking up leaves minimizes flooding and improves water quality. Learn more about the City’s leaf collection and delivery program.
