Leaf Vacuuming & Limb Chipping

Limb & Leaf Collection 

Limb Collection Update: January 13th, 2023
Mid-Winter Limb Chipping
Public Works crews will make one pass through the City to chip limbs placed at the curb beginning on Monday, January 30. To guarantee pick up, please have your limbs stacked at the curb by 7:00 am the morning of January 30. The schedule is weather dependent and may be suspended at any time due to inclement weather. 

To qualify for collection, limbs must be...
  • Placed by the curb (not in the street)
  • At least 3 feet long
  • Between 0.5 and 3 inches in diameter
  • Less than 300 cubic feet per pickup
    (e.g., 10' wide x 5' tall x 6' deep)
  • Limbs only (no leaves, evergreens, vines, bamboo, root balls, or thorns)

Leaf Vacuuming Guidelines:
  • Place leaves along the front lawn edge of the property.
  • Keep leaves away from mailboxes and landscaped areas.
  • Do not place leaves in the street or cover the sidewalk.
  • Loose leaves should be placed at the curb before 7:00 a.m. the Monday of pickup week to ensure pick-up throughout the week. 
As a reminder, please keep leaf piles off of the street. As the City continues to complete street work and repairs this fall, any leaves in the street will be blown back into the yard. Leaf piles should always be on the curb of your yard - not in the street. Thank you for your cooperation!
