The City of Roeland Park Public Works department is committed to providing the best leaf pickup service for our residents. In doing so, we have strategically modified our 2015 Leaf Pickup schedule. The 2015 Leaf Pickup Program will begin November 2nd and will end the week of December 7th. Homes East & West of Roe Blvd will have three weeks of leaf collection and homes on Roe Blvd will have two Saturday pickups. The final two weeks of our program is no longer an “All City” program. We have provided specific dates we will perform final pickup in your neighborhood. The leaf pickup schedule is as follows:
November 9th – 13th
November 23rd – 25th
December 7th – 9th (See map for final pickup date)
November 2nd – 6th
November 16th – 20th
November 30th – December 4th (See map for final pickup date)
Please see the map below for the final pick up date scheduled for your neighborhood. The final pick up date for your area is marked in bold font. It is vitally important each resident has their leaves out on the street one day prior to your final scheduled leaf pickup date. Public Works crews will not be back to pick up piles of leaves once your final pickup date has passed. As always, weather can change our leaf pickup schedule. Please contact Director of Public Works, Jose Leon at 913-722-5435 or firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions or concerns.

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.
