Fall Leaf Pickup

Regular Garbage Day Pickup Procedure: Residents may arrange to have leaves at the curbside the night before or before 7:00 am regular garbage day in:

  • Paper lawn and leaf bags: Available for purchase at Tops, Wegmans, Home Depot, Lowes, most hardware stores, and at the Highway Department 5 bags for $3.00. DO NOT USE plastic bags for yard waste. They will not be picked up!
  • Open reusable containers: Examples: garbage can without lid, bushel basket, plastic container. Containers should not weigh over 50 pounds, and we ask that you do not place rocks, metal or household garbage in with your yard waste.
  • For quicker service: Residents may bring their yard waste to the Compost Site, 500 Mineral Springs, Monday - Friday 7:30 am - 2:30 pm.

Leaf Vacuum Truck Pickup Procedure:

Residents my arrange to have their leaves put to the road edge, to be collected by the leaf vacuum truck. (Please do not push them into the street as it may cause a road hazard.)
Also, keep leaves and branches separated; branches are not able to be vacuumed and residents are encouraged to follow the guidelines for their proper disposal. This year's leaf vacuum pickup began , October 2023 and will continue until ALL leaves are collected.

In an effort to provide our residents with more efficient service, we implemented the following leaf pickup schedule in 2010 which proved to be very successful.

Below is this year's annual leaf pickup schedule. We have separated the Town into four (4) sections. We will start collecting leaves in section one (1) until all streets in that section are covered once. We will then proceed to section two (2) and so forth, repeating the process as necessary until all the leaves are picked up.
