The city leaf collection program in Mount Pulaski has been
scheduled for Oct. 17 to Dec. 12. The city will use a leaf vacuum to
assist residents with the disposal of leaves. To help make this
program a success, the city asks residents to please follow the
The leaf vacuum is
designed for leaf removal only. Do not place sticks, limbs or
other debris in the leaf pile. These foreign materials may cause
damage to the machine and possible injury to city personnel.
Placement of the
leaves is a key element to the success of the program. Place the
leaves in a row so that they are located within 4 feet of the
edge of the pavement.
Keep the leaf
piles no higher than 3 feet, for safety and visibility.
Leaves should be
placed and ready for pickup by 7:30 a.m. Monday. The city
intends to collect leaves every Monday at a minimum. Other days
may be added as the workload dictates.
Rake the leaves to
the back of the curb, on the grass area. If cars are
continuously parked in front of your residence, please place the
leaves at the edge of your driveway.
Do not place
leaves in a rocked or gravel area.
Do not place
leaves in the road ditches or in the street.

The city can pick
up leaves that are either dry or wet. If you have problems with
the leaves blowing, you can wet them down. Another option is to
cover the leaves with a tarp.
Do not place leaves in an area where
you have previously had a fire. The city will not vacuum leaves
from this area, because of the potential of smoldering material
becoming ignited inside the leaf vacuum.
Leaves may also be burned in accordance with city ordinance.
Copies of the ordinance may be obtained by contacting City Hall.
Leaves may also be mulched by using a mulching blade on your lawn
Should you have any questions or concerns about this leaf
collection program, please call City Hall at 792-3222.
