Annual Leaf Removal

From November through January (adjusted as needed), an annual leaf pick up service is provided to reduce the obstruction of storm drains and the risk of flooding. Leaf pick ups take place a few days prior to the street sweeping days to remove the bulk of leaves. This will allow the street sweeper to remove smaller debris. Our leaf pick up service is for street trees only. It does not include removal of backyard debris.
