Republic Services and Waste Management, the City’s two residential waste collection service providers, start seasonal Leaf Season collection on October 1 each year. Leaf Season ends on December 31.
During Leaf Season only, your service provider will collect up to (5) additional bags (preferably clear plastic) of leaves at no additional charge. Place the bagged leaves next to your green/food waste cart on your regular service day. Extra Service stickers are not required for bagged leaves during Leaf Season.
Remember, leaf bags must contain only leaves. If a bag contains leaves mixed with grass trimmings, branches, brush, or other non-leaf content, the bag will not be collected without an “Extra Service” sticker.
After December 31, only bags with “Extra Service” stickers will be picked up.
