Isn’t this program meant to pick up all of my leaves?

No. Curbside leaf collection is one of several; options for leaf disposal each year, and each option compliments the others. We also offer a free bagged leaf program, which runs the entire month of December, and you can also mulch or compost your leaves, which is healthiest for your yard and the environment. No one option is intended to pick up all the leaves that fall; instead, it’s the combination of options that clears the most leaves.
