Leaf Collection Update 11/26/19; Third Collection Scheduled

A third leaf collection will take place throughout the City beginning Tuesday, December 3, 2019. All leaves must be placed out on the street by Monday, December 2, 2019 to be picked up during this final collection. Please do not place any additional leaves out on the street after December 2.

Any remaining leaves left after the December 3 pickup may be bagged and disposed, for a fee, at the Material Recovery Facility located at 4208 E. River Road, Mt. Pleasant. Leaves left out in the street after the December 3 collection will be the responsibility of the property owner and may be subject to code enforcement.

This year’s leaf collection schedule was impacted by October and November snowfalls leaving a considerable amount of snow and ice. Due to this snow accumulation and frigid temperatures, the wet leaves froze making it challenging for both residents to rake, and street crews to pick up the piles of leaves.

We appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we maneuver through this weather challenged Fall that has forced periodic adjustments to our leaf collection schedule. As previously announced, a Spring leaf collection will be scheduled at a later date.

Thank you again for your understanding during this collection process and please share this information with your neighbors.
