Republic Services picks up leaves on paved public streets with curbs and gutters over three 2-week periods each year. The exact date for leaf pickup at your location during each 2-week period can vary depending on the volume of leaves.

2021 collection periods: 10/25-11/5, 11/8-11/19, and 11/28-12/10

Rake only leaves into the street right before each of the three Republic Services pickup periods.

Rows should be long, narrow and two feet away from the curb. Be sure not to block bike lanes, storm drains, or driveways.

Remember: You can also use your weekly yard/food debris cart or compost piles to dispose of additional leaves between collection periods.

Leaves left near stormwater drains create hazards and pollution

Leaves piled on or near stormwater drains or planters can make rainwater pool on streets, creating unsafe driving conditions such as flooding and slippery surfaces. Putting leaves directly into storm drains pollutes waterways, harming fish and other wildlife. Please wait until the beginning of each collection period to move your leaves into the street.

Help prevent flooding, keep waterways clean, and make streets safer for bicyclists and drivers:

  • Place as many leaves as possible in yard debris carts or compost bins or piles.
  • Rake remaining leaves into the street without blocking drivers’ visibility or bike lanes.
  • Piles should be long, low, narrow piles two feet from the curb.
  • Keep leaf piles away from storm drains and stormwater planters to prevent clogs and flooding. 
  • Call Public Works at 541-917-7600 if you see flooding or a storm drain that is clogged.
