REQUIREMENTS:

  1. All leaves/limbs must be placed at the curb or at your   normal trash collection point by 5:00 a.m. of the scheduled curbside collection day (or set out the night before).
  2. TREE TRIMMINGS must be no more than 6 inches in diameter and 4 feet in length, and in an amount not to   exceed one 4’ long x 2’ high x 2’ wide bundle at any one location. Bundles must be bound by twine or string. Use of wire or plastic ties is not acceptable.
  3. LEAVESmust be put in biodegradable “paper” bags or in containers that can be picked up and dumped by one person. Local grocery and hardware businesses carry the large paper bags which can be used for the leaf pickup.
  4. NO GRASS CLIPPINGS will be picked up curbside.   Grass clippings can be deposited at the Recycle Center.
  5. LEAF VAC: Late in the fall of the year, after notice is given leaves can be raked to the curb, but not into the street or curb & gutter. Leaf vacuum trucks will go thru town and collect the piles of leaves from the edge of your yard.

City of Washington Crews will conduct two rounds of leaf pickups for residents this year.

The first round is scheduled to run November 5th through November 9th.

The second round is scheduled to run November 26th through November 30th.

In both rounds crews will start picking up leaves on the east side of town and proceed to the west.  If the leaves are not out on the day we were in your area, we will not come back to pick them up on the first round but will get them on the second round.  

Residents are asked to rake their leaves to the curb, but not place them in the streets, gutters or on sidewalks.

Residents are also asked to not park vehicles near the piles of leaves to make it easier for crews to pick them up.  If vehicles are parked on or too close to the pile those leaves will be left and picked up on the second round as long as the vehicle is moved.
