Fall Leaf Collection

Service Details

Any City of Plymouth resident or business may utilize curbside bulk leaf pickup.  Bulk leaf pickup is a service that is only in the fall and allows for the disposal of fallen leaves loose at the curb.  A mailer is sent out to notify residents and businesses of the respective pickup weeks.  Additionally, signs are posted to remind neighbors of the appropriate weeks.

There is no cost to utilize this service.

How it Works

City crews will pick up your bulk leaves from your curbside during your designated week.  Access must be provided from the street.  To ensure your leaves are removed quickly and safely, please follow these guidelines:

  • Park cars away from leaf piles – car exhaust systems may catch leaves on fire.
  • Avoid placing leaves over storm drains.
  • Keep storm drains free of leaves and clear leaves frequently to prevent street flooding.
  • Keep grass clippings, small branches, corn stalks, pumpkins, dirt, rocks, firewood, stumps, and root balls separate from bulk leaf piles.  These items should be placed in a Kraft bag or compost can for regular compost collection.
  • Keep brush chipping limbs in a separate pile away from leaves.

Leaves may also be bagged or placed in a can for compost pickup.  See the composting page for service details and schedule.
