The city’s Department of Environmental Services’ annual Fall Loose Leaf Collection Program will begin Monday, Nov. 2, when crews begin work in sections of the city’s Northwest and Southeast quadrants.
A collection schedule and map can be found on the city’s Loose Leaf Collection Program Web page at www.cityofrochester.gov/leaves. Residents can also check their DES “At Your Service” guides, which were delivered by mail earlier this month, to learn when City crews will be in their neighborhood.
The program continues through Nov. 27.
Residents are reminded to rake loose leaves into a pile between the sidewalk and the curb before the Monday of their scheduled collection week and to not rake leaves into the street. Bagged leaves may be placed at the curb to be collected on residents’ regular refuse collection days.
