Please give me your input on what you would like to see in upcoming editions. Send a note with any suggestions to this email. You can add a neighbor's email address or manage your current email subscription through the links at the bottom of this page.

Leaf Collection

City crews will start collecting leaves on Monday, Nov. 2, in the eastern quadrant of the city (quadrant 1), east of U.S. 52 and Liberty Street and south of New Walkertown Road.

Collection will proceed clockwise by quadrant and continue until the leaf trucks have made three passes through each neighborhood.

Citizens can go to to track the progress of leaf collection and to enter their address for an estimate of when the leaf trucks will be in their neighborhood. Once leaf collection begins, estimated collection dates may be revised frequently, based on weather conditions, equipment problems and the volume of leaves placed out for collection.

Residents who do not have access to a computer can call CityLink at 311 and a City Link agent will look up their estimated collection date.

For leaf collection follow these guidelines:

  • Rake leaves to the edge of the yard, behind the curb, and not in the street.
  • Sticks, rocks, and other debris may damage our equipment. Please, leaves only.
  • Do not park vehicles on, in front of, or near leaves.
  • Do not put leaves on a tarp or over a storm drain.
  • Leaf collection is provided to single-family houses only.
  • Remember, residents MAY NOT burn leaves inside the city limits.
