Leaves are only picked up in the month of December. As such, no large yard trimmings are collected as part of the green waste program in December. Leaf collection only occurs on the streets; there is no alley pick-up. It is important that no other yard trimmings are mixed in with the leaves as the collection crews will not pick up piles with sticks and/or large limbs.
As with other small yard waste/trimmings, you should fill your green yard waste container with leaves first, and then pile any excess on the street for collection.
