Leaf Vacuuming & Limb Chipping


Public Works crews will make one pass through the city to chip limbs placed at the curb beginning on Monday, January 29, 2024. This start date is weather dependent, and the program may be suspended at any time due to inclement weather.  To guarantee pick up, please have your limbs at the curb by 7:00 a.m. the morning of January 29, 2024.

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
  • Limbs only (no leaves, evergreens, vines, bamboo, root balls, or thorns)

LEAF COLLECTION UPDATE - Program completed for the Season

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. Leaf piles should always be on the curb of your yard - not in the street. Thank you for your cooperation!
