An annual service to the community, the Gainesville Public Works Department collects leaves curbside from October-January for residents within City limits.
To ensure roadways remain clear and safe, the Street Maintenance Division requests residents adhere to the following guidelines when placing leaves curbside:
- Leaves are to be placed in long, narrow piles behind the curb
- Do not place leaves in the gutter as it can inhibit storm water from draining properly
- Do not place leaves in the road as this can create a hazard impacting traffic
- Please remove all debris such as sticks, limbs and trash
