Sticks larger than 6 inches in length can clog the leaf vacuum equipment and cause serious damage, delaying collection operations. Leaf piles must be free of twigs and branches to be collected by the leaf vacuum trucks. Small brush piles of twigs and sticks can be discarded in your YARDY cart.
Should weather or un-characteristically heavy volumes delay collection, crews will use Fridays and Saturdays to complete the area they were working in before moving on.
If you are struggling to identify which day your leaves will be collected, please call the Solid Waste & Recycling Division at 319-286-5897.
