Curbside leaf pickup program offered to residents south of Spruce Street in 2018

OCTOBER 2, 2018 | Public Information Office

The City of Leavenworth will offer curbside leaf pickup to residents from Spruce Street to Eisenhower Road in 2018. This program is weather dependent. It is scheduled to begin Nov. 5.

Curbside leaf pickup is offered to half the City each alternating year. For example, in 2017 the City offered curbside pickup to the northern half, in 2016 the southern half. This is done to meet the quick turnaround of leaf pickup and unpredictable Kansas weather.

Residents who are not on the collection route:

  • Can bag leaves for regular garbage collection or
  • Take leaves to the Brush Site, 1803 S. Second St., for free disposal. Hours for the site are Tuesday through Saturday, 8:30 a.m. to 3:50 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.

    Tips for placing leaves for curbside pickup:
    • 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 residents’ regular weekly service.
