That sucking sound you hear? The 2019 vacuum leaf collection program is scheduled to begin on Monday, November 4. The vacuum pickup is offered once a year for single-family homes that receive city waste collection service.

Residents should prepare leaves before collection by raking into the area between the sidewalk and the street. If you have no sidewalk or it is right next to the curb, place the leaves on the edge of your lawn closest to the street.
