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 Collection Program
The Creve Coeur Leaf Vacuuming Program provides residents with a convenient way to dispose of leaves. City staff picks up leaves from one side of the road at a time.

Leaf Vacuuming Guidelines:
  • Place leaves along the front law 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. Leaves will be picked up any day during 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!
