Leaf Pile Guidelines

  • Piles should be no more than two cubic yards in size (3’x3’x6′ pile).
  • Place the pile six feet from any obstruction (cars, boats, basketball hoops etc.)
  • Make sure there is space between the curb and pile to allow water to flow to storm drains. Do not place piles in bike lanes.
  • Do not put pet waste in any yard waste pile or container. Pet waste goes into the garbage container.
  • Piles should not be in plastic bags.
  • Christmas Trees will be accepted in piles
