Leaf Pick Up

The 2022 Fall Leaf Collection will begin mid-October


The service department strives to provide leaf collection service equally on each street.  To ensure your leaves are picked up, please rake or blow them to your tree lawn before the truck comes down your side of the street. The truck will not turn around for those who miss the collection, and you will have to wait until the leaf collection cycle is completed on all streets before the truck will return. There is no set street schedule because one street may take longer than the other. The service department's goal is to provide our residents with several leaf collection cycles this fall. This service is very dependent upon the weather.

For fast and efficient leaf collection, please follow these tips:

  • DO NOT place grass clippings or tall grass in with the leaves, as it will clog the machine and cause a delay in pickup.
  • Rake your leaves onto your tree lawn in a timely manner. This will help to ensure that you do not miss the crew when they are on your street.
  • Do NOT place the leaves in the roadway. Rake leaves to the tree lawn in a line as close to the curb as possible without going into the street. Leaves raked in a line rather than heaped in a pile help accelerate the pickup process. Leaves put into the roadway are also extremely dangerous for motorists.
  • Please place your branches and sticks in a separate pile where our chipper crew will gladly take them.
  • If possible, please refrain from piling any leaves AROUND a tree, fire hydrant, street pole, or signpost on your tree lawn.
  • The leaf truck cannot pick up very damp or snow-covered leaves. 

Please keep in mind the city does not have a spring leaf collection program.



  • Kimble will gladly accept leaves that are bagged and left out on your regular trash collection day. 
  • On your regular rubbish collection day, twigs, branches, and tree limbs can be placed on your tree lawn. The service department will chip those items on your regular rubbish day only. 
  • Do not place these items on your tree lawn prior to your regular rubbish collection day.
