[ARCHIVED] Disposal of Leaves
The primary reason for this is to keep the leaves from entering the storm drain system. An accumulation of leaves can block the storm sewer drains or clog the storm drainage pipes that could result in flooding. Residents have the option of bagging leaves in approved yard waste bags for pickup by City crews or to haul the leaves to the Landfill for composting. There is no charge for dumping yard waste at the Landfill.
