Leaf Collection Program to Begin October 17th

The City’s annual leaf collection program will begin on October 17, 2016 and will run through the first week in February 2017. The hours of leaf collection are from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

During this period it will be permissible for City residents to rake leaves into City streets adjacent to the curb and gutter. To allow for proper drainage, residents are asked to place leaves a minimum of 24 inches (2 feet) from the curb face. City crews will be making regular sweeps of residential areas to collect the accumulated leaves for the duration of the program.

The leaves are collected by specialized equipment designed for this purpose only; therefore, the public is reminded that no debris other than leaves will be collected from the streets.

For further information call (661) 326-3111 during the hours of 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
