Loose Leaf Pickup Guidelines

In an effort to keep the leaf crews on schedule and to prevent leaf machines from breaking down the following guidelines have been implemented:

  • The City is divided into ten (10) work zones.
  • Leaves must be raked to the curb the day before the zone is scheduled to receive service.
  • Each zone will receive service for two (2) consecutive business days on a rotating basis.
  • A zone will not receive service before the scheduled pickup date.
  • If a zone is not completed within the two (2) day period, the leaf crews will move into the next scheduled zone and back track to complete the incomplete zones as time permits.
  • Leaves must not be raked in the street, in the gutter-line, on the sidewalks, around parked cars, or around fire hydrants.

Wrong way to rake leaves
  • Leaves must not obstruct drainage structures, catch basins, mailboxes, sidewalks, or guy wires.
  • Leaves must be free of limbs, rocks, tires, wheels, household trash, or other debris that can damage equipment or cause injury.
  • Leaves will be picked up on the street or alley the residence faces.
  • Leaves will not be picked up within privately owned trailer parks, on private property, in subdivision outside the city limits, or on the premises of businesses.
  • Scott Waste Management will pick up bagged leaves on your regular garbage pickup day.
  • Leaf piles that contain junk and/or debris such as tree limbs, trash, discarded household or garage items, etc. will not be picked up because those items may cause an injury to personnel or cause damage the equipment.
  • If we intentionally do not pick up your leaves, we will place an ORANGE door hanger on your door explaining the reason why your leaves were not picked up along with a contact number.
