Leaf Collection Program
The Leaf Collection Program is a limited service designed to supplement yard waste collection provided by Granger.  Removing the fallen leaves helps to prevent ponding, flooding, and road icing as a result of blocked drainage paths and catch basins.  As a service to our residents, City staff collect leaves in the right of way during this specific time.  You can help the City clear the autumn leaves.
  • Please rake leaves that have accumulated in your front yard out to the right of way, no more than a few days before your street’s collection day; see the Zone Map. 
  • Please do not rake leaves onto sidewalks, roadways, on top of catch basins, or obstruct water flow in any way. 
  • Improperly placed leaves may cause them to be missed during the pick-up day and can create dangerous conditions for pedestrians, cyclists, motorists, and may create flooding conditions. 
  • All other leaves (like those from side and back yards) should be placed in either disposable paper bags or in trash cans, 30-gallon or smaller, and placed at the curb on Fridays by Granger.  Granger will accept up to 4 bags or cans weekly from each residence until November 30th, as part of their service with the City.
