Leaf Collection

During the months of October and November, Village public works crews provide bulk leaf pick-up services to Village residents. Residents who wish to have their leaves collected must have them raked neatly within 5’ behind the curb/edge of roadway in front of their homes by 7 am on the Monday of each collection week. Crews will make one pass through the Village each of the following weeks, October 30th, November 6th, November 13th and November 20th. 

Grass clippings, sticks, twigs and other debris cannot be collected through the bulk leaf collection process.  Placement of foreign debris will result in the crew skipping your address.  Additionally, crews cannot vacuum leaves that are within 10’ of a tree, mailbox, fire hydrant, street light, street sign, etc.  Do not park cars in front of the leaves to be collected, our crew will not be able to collect them.

The Village’s new refuse hauler DC Trash will also pick-up leaves each week on your regularly scheduled collection day for no additional charge.  There are no stickers needed, you will however have to place leaves in paper yard waste bags.  Bags shall be placed at the curb no earlier than 5:00pm the night before your schedule collection.

Leaf burning is prohibited by village ordinance (Village of Montgomery Code, Section 12-27). It is also important to remember that leaves must be placed on the parkway in front of the property from which they originate (Village of Montgomery Code, Section 9-45), so please do not rake leaves into the street or onto other lots.
