Roadside, Limbs & Leaves


Bulk trash and furniture are picked up on Fridays. The city is not responsible for picking up any building or remodeling materials (including but not limited to: lumber, bricks, plaster, roofing materials, fence wire, boards with nails, rocks, sand, dirt, carpeting, and concrete).


Limbs are picked up Monday through Friday each week on a route. Limbs should be placed behind the curb for pick up and should not exceed 5' length by 4" diameter. Not more than one (1) pile 3 feet wide by 3 feet high by 5 feet long will be picked up per week per residence. Branches and trimmings cut by commercial landscape or tree service contractors will not be picked up by the city and should be removed by the contractor.


Loose leaves and grass trimmings will be vacuumed from the beginning of November until the middle of February each year. Leaves must be bagged for pickup at any other time. Leaves should be placed behind the curb and never in the roadway.


October 17, 2016 thru early February, 2017

Starting Monday, October 17th the City’s Public Works Department will begin the process of retrieving leaves left at the roadside curb. “Only leaves will be vacuumed.” All other pickups will remain as scheduled.

City leaf crews will be operating a route that will encompass the entire City. You can expect to have your leaves removed within 7-10 business days. It is our goal to make it to every street within this specified time. Please notify our Department if we fail to pick up your leaves within 10 business days. We ask for your patience as we try to accommodate all of our citizens during this time.

We respectfully ask that you place all leaves in the grass area behind the curb and off the roadway.

 This will assist the City in complying with the Federal Mandated Water Pollution Control Guidelines, by preventing leaves from washing into the storm drains, causing blockages and increases in sedimentation and other organic materials.
