Leaf Pickup for Signed Streets

  • For signed streets, it begins October 17; ends week of December 6 (weather permitting). There will be NO WARNING NOTICES; parking tickets will be issued.
  • If you reside on a street with signed parking restrictions (the first & third Tuesdays and Wednesdays of the month), please abide by the schedule as it appears on that sign to avoid a parking ticket. The no-parking regulation allows a more complete leaf pickup and provides safety for the crew members. The police will enforce street signs that prohibit parking on certain days.
