Leaf Collection

During the months of October and November, village public works crews provide leaf pick-up services to village residents.   All residential addresses in the Village of Montgomery will be serviced three times in 2016.  The dates listed below are start dates for the two areas of town.  Due to weather, staffing, potential equipment issues, and the volume of leaves, we are unable to give more specific pick-up windows.  Residents who wish to have their leaves collected must have them raked neatly within 5' of the back of the curb or shoulder of the road, in front of their home, for crews to access them by 7 a.m. on the first scheduled pick-up date for their area. 

Leaves shall not be gathered within 10' of any obstruction (ex. mailbox, street or sign pole, fire hydrant, parkway tree, etc.).  Crews are forced to go around piles that have a parked car obstructing the curb line.  Due to the tremendous scope of this work village wide, leaves being piled in proximity to an obstruction, or obstructed by a parked car will have to be skipped.  Our crews cannot come back until the next scheduled collection date.   

This program is intended to provide residents a cost effective way to dispose of leaves.  The bulk of the piles will be vacuumed up as crews go by your address.  It is impossible for the crew to collect 100% of the leaves piled for collections.  NO BRUSH, GRASS CLIPPINGS, OR TRASH WILL BE ACCEPTED.  If your pile contains anything more than leaves, crews will skip over the pile.  Foreign objects cause damage to this costly equipment and can put the operator and resident's, in the area of the collection machine, at risk of injury or death due to flying shrapnel.

The leaf pick-up is scheduled to begin as follows:

Everything East of Orchard Rd., will be picked up:

Starting on Monday, October 31, 2016

Starting on Monday, November 14, 2016

Starting on Monday, November 21, 2016


Everything West of Orchard Rd. will be picked up:

Starting on Wednesday, November 2, 2016

Starting on Wednesday, November 16, 2016

Starting on Tuesday, November 22, 2016 (one day earlier due to Thanksgiving)


Dates and times may change without notice due to volume of leaves and/or weather conditions.

Crews will make one pass through the designated routes on the scheduled days.  Crews will work in addition to the scheduled times if necessary to complete the scheduled pick-up. The service is generally provided during October and November, but the start and end dates will be determined by weather conditions and landfill closing dates.

Leaves may also be bagged in paper landscape waste bags and stickered for pick-up by Republic Services on your scheduled solid waste collection day. 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.
