Residents must have their leaves in paper biodegradable bags and
placed by the curb before 7 a.m. on their scheduled day of pickup.
No brush or other landscape material will be picked up, only the
leaves. If the bags are not out when the crews drive the routes, the
crews will not come back until the next scheduled day for that ward.
Other ways to get rid of your leaves are as follows:
Use a mulching
mower blade on your mower.
Burn your leaves.
You can burn in the city limits on Tuesday, Thursday and
Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. as long as you are no closer than
50 feet from any structure and have a garden hose or some other
extinguishing device present. You also must be watching the fire
at all times. You may not burn on asphalt or seal coat roadways.

on Wednesdays and Saturdays with the same hours.
