Please do not park on the street on the pick-up day in your neighborhood.  The leaf machines are not able to get close enough to a parked vehicle to pick-up leaves and the pile of leaves will be left behind.

Parking over a pile of leaves can create a fire hazard – a warm car engine can ignite the leaves underneath it.

We ask that you do not rake leaves around the edges of cul-de-sac islands.  Instead, rake them to the residential side as our machines are not able to pick up around the cul-de-sac islands.

During predicted rain, we ask that residents clean the inlets in their neighborhood to help prevent flooding.
