Residents should rake leaves to the curb and place them in the parkway grass where the vacuum trucks will collect them. When placing the leaves at the curb, please do NOT put them in the street as they may block culverts or storm sewer openings. Leaves piled in these areas may create drainage problems in the event of heavy rains or melting snow. Do NOT place leaves in plastic bags or containers.
