When is Leaf Collection in the Summit Area?

Not a fan of picking up your leaves? Don’t worry, the city can do that for you. Leaf collection pickup is offered once a year for single-family homes that receive city waste collection service.

The city advises to never put leaves on the road as they can cause traffic hazards and clog storm drains. Residents that receive city waste collection services should rake their leaves into the area between the sidewalk and the street.

This should be done before the scheduled pickup. If there is no space between your sidewalk and the street, place the leaves on the edge of your lawn closest to the street.two men sucking up leaves

Piles should contain only leaves. Other objects, such as tree limbs and rocks, can injure crew members or damage equipment.

The leaf collection starts on November 5th for the city of Lexington

Residents living in the 40517 will have their leaves picked up starting November 12 and go until November 18.

Adverse weather can affect scheduled dates so keep track of updates here or sign up for email or text notifications at lexingtonky.gov/311alerts.
