Curbside collection of leaves and yard waste will resume the week of October 11, 2020. Be sure to set out the leaves on your scheduled days.

Drop-off sites remain available, though residents should expect to encounter lines. Check the drop-off site website for hours and restrictions.

If appropriate, residents can also mulch the grass clippings or leaves into the lawn, or compost it with a backyard bin.
