The 2011 - 2012 leaf collection season is here.
Leaf vacuum trucks are finishing up zone three and preparing to start zones four and five and the second pass of zone one! Check the schedule below to see when the trucks will be in your neighborhood.
You can track the progress of our leaf trucks on our Facebook page! Click on the "Vacuum Leaf Progress Map" tab on the left to see where the vacuum trucks have vacuumed.

Vacuum Collection: November 14 - December 24, 2011
Crews will complete two passes through each neighborhood between November and December, Monday through Saturday, except Thanksgiving Day.
Look for large, bright yellow and orange Leaf Collection signs in your neighborhood two to three days before crews arrive.

Plan accordingly with your contract lawn service to have leaves raked before scheduled pick-up or use the County's leaf bag collection service.
