Leaf Collection Update 12/15/2021
Leaf Collection Update Similar to last week, the Public Works Dept is finishing up week 3 of Round 2. Some crews are heading into zones scheduled in week 4 but we will double back on Monday in those areas per the schedule. We are also currently going back into zones from earlier in round 2 to pick up leaves which were brought out after us.
Leaf pickup for Round Two will begin the week of November 29. Please click here to see a map of the entire Township divided into Zones 1 – 26.
Below is the schedule we have laid out. Please have your leaves out a couple of days early in case we are ahead of schedule. Leaves will be collected in inclement weather, depending on the severity. This will, however, slow down the process which will delay pickup.
November 29: Zones 1-8, 14
December 6: Zones 9-13
December 13: Zones 15-20
December 20: Zones 21-26
Your leaves cannot be collected if there are sticks, twigs, grass or rocks mixed in. This damages our equipment and slows down the leaf collection efforts. Also, please do not park any vehicles near leaf piles.
Please feel free to contact Public Works at 267-274-1130 with any questions or concerns.
Please remember we can only pick up leaves. Sticks, logs, root balls, ornamental grass, etc… all cause problems with the equipment. Here is a picture of wood that got caught in the fan of the leaf vacuum and almost caught on fire.
