When does the town pick up loose leaves?
Loose leaf collection is a major effort occurring each fall, beginning in mid-October. Up to ten specially-equipped trucks are used to vacuum up piles of leaves that residents place by the roadside. It’s a labor-intensive process, and it takes up to four weeks just to go through the town once. Usually each area is picked up three or more times during the fall season.
