Bagged leaf collection season starts Monday, October 15, 2012 and continues
through Monday, January 14, 2013. The Bureau of Solid Waste will collect
bagged leaves every Monday throughout the season.

1. Solid Waste crews will collect up to 20 bags of leaves from each
address every Monday. Residents must call 311 before Sunday at 10 p.m. for
the next day collection to schedule a pickup. Residents may make multiple
appointments for up to two months prior to the pick-up date.

2. The Bureau of Solid Waste will also continue to collect bagged
leaves on citizens’ regularly scheduled trash collection day. Solid Waste
crews will collect 5 bags of leaves from each address every week. Residents
need to put leaves in clear or labeled bags and place them at their regular
mixed refuse collection location and not in the public right-of-way. With
Monday collections and regular mixed refuse collections, the Bureau of Solid
Waste will collect, in total, 25 bags of leaves per week per resident.
