DPS will begin leaf pickup on the second Monday in October and continue to collect leaves until the end of November. DPS prides itself on its leaf collection program. To help continue this excellent program, please follow these simple rules:
- Place leaves at the edge of the road, not in the street
- Ensure that no grass, flowers, twigs, branches, etc., are mixed in. These items can clog or damage the leaf machines. Please place these items (other than grass, which is not picked up) in yard waste bags or containers
- Leaves in plastic bags will not be picked up
- If you live on Santa Barbara or Bloomfield, place leaves along the adjacent side street
The entire area south of I-696 has leaf pickup on Thursdays. Download a leaf pickup schedule
