2017 Fall Leaf Pickup Schedule The Governing Body has approved the 2017 Fall Leaf Pickup Schedule. The schedule includes 6 weeks of continuous leaf pickup beginning on November 6th, ending on December 15th. It is important to note that the final two weeks of pickup will be scheduled according to the 2017 Final Leaf Pickup Map shown below and will also be posted on the City’s website . Please note your final pickup date on the map and be sure your leaves are in the street the evening prior to your final pickup to ensure your leaves will not be missed. The overall schedule is as follows: West of Roe East of Roe November 6th-10th November 13th-17th November 20th-22nd November 27th-December 1st December 6th-8th FINAL PICKUP (see map) December 11th-15th FINAL PICKUP (see map) Click Here to see the map showing your final pickup date. Your leaves should be placed in the street the day prior to your scheduled final pick up. **Not subject to Roe Blvd pickup** As a reminder, please rake your leaves into the street about a foot from the curb so the machine can get in and pick them up. Please do not allow any other items to be in with the leaves as they can damage the machine and cause unnecessary expenses to the City and to you, the taxpayer. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the leaf program, please feel free to contact City Hall. OTHER OPTIONS FOR HANDLING FALL LEAVES
- Feed your lawn with leaves by using a mulching mower! Instead of raking leaves, run a mulching mower across up to six inches of fallen leaves instead of raking. More information available at the Kansas State University Extension Office
- Use the weekly Compostable pickup. Use a plastic trash can with a "Yard Waste" sticker to roll around the yard and then to the curb—no bags in the container. Paper yard waste bags are great for leaves, too.
