  • Leaves should be placed in the street (not yard) and may placed slightly away from the curb to allow for storm water drainage and ease in leaf collection efforts.
  • Leaves placed in the street prior to the specified date will be subject to a fine.
  • It should be noted that any brush, sod, bricks, rocks, trash or other foreign materials will damage machinery, hamper our ability to perform our pickup, and lead to a visit from the Code Enforcement Officer with a possible citation.
  • Please do not place leaves in terrace areas as city equipment cannot pick them up.

The Department of Public Services offers a compost drop off area located at 1015 S. Lincoln Avenue.  We accept brush, leaves, grass clippings and garden waste at the compost area.  The compost area is open 24/7 for City residents.  If you have any questions, please call the Department of Public Services at 273-1845.
