Public Works crews working to collect large number of leaves in Zone 6

The fall leaf collection program conducted by the Department of Public Works (DPW) is behind schedule for the second round, and are still working to collect leaves in Zone 6, one of the most heavily tree ladened zones in the city. Once Zone 6, DPW crews will move into Zone 7 and then to Zone 8 to complete the second round.

Two crews are currently working in Zone 6 with a third truck anticipated to join the effort once personnel can be allocated to crew the truck from other projects.

Residents who have already raked their leaves to the curb are asked to be patient and that city crews will collect the deposited leaves as they move through each zone. An additional round of collection through the eight city zones is dependent on the weather.

Additional announcements will be made as the trucks move into additional zones. Residents are asked to be patient as the effort continues. For additional information or if you have questions, please email
