Options available for residents to dispose of leaves

Public Information Office | Sept. 20, 2017

The City of Leavenworth will offer curbside leaf pick-up service to residents from Metropolitan Avenue to Spruce Street. This program is weather-dependent and begins Nov. 1. Residents from Eisenhower Street to Spruce Street who are not on the collection route can bag leaves for regular refuse collection or take leaves to the Brush Site at 1803 S. Second St. for free disposal.

Tips to placing leaves for pick-up:
- Residents should place the leaves as close to the street as possible, without covering the sidewalk. The piles must be free of materials such as branches. Please do not rake leaves into the street. Please do not block mailboxes.
- To provide the leaf collection equipment better access to the streets, residents are encouraged to rake leaves away from vehicles.
- Leaves placed in plastic bags or boxes will only be collected on trash day. Residents choosing to bag leaves need to have the bags on the curb no more than 24 hours before their scheduled refuse pick-up day. The bags of leaves will then be picked up with their trash by the Refuse workers as part of their normal weekly service.


Can I take leaves somewhere other than the curbside program?
Disposal of leaves and grass is available to residents free of charge at the Brush site, 1803 S. 2nd St. The site is open Tuesday through Saturday, 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. until the last day of November. Clippings at the brush site are used for making compost. The compost is available to residents free of charge at the brush site.
