Fall leaf collection & dropoff info

It’s officially fall, and leaves are in full gear launching themselves from the treetops and into your yard. And those once-glorious gardens – they’re starting to look a little scraggly, right? Here’s what to do with all those heaps of leaves and garden debris!

Acceptable items: Non-woody leaf, garden, and yard debris only.
No plastic bags, branches, rocks, sod, trash, or pumpkins.

Seasonal Dates & Hours 2019

Burlington curbside leaf pick-up

November 18th – 22nd, 2019

Burlington Public Works will pick up leaves for Burlington residents on your recycling day during the week of November 18th. Leaves will be picked up only if they are in compostable paper bags. Sometimes, especially on the Monday and Tuesday of that week, DPW may get “ahead” and pick up leaves on the next day’s route. They will return to get everyone’s leaves. Not available for condominiums, apartment complexes, or commercial properties.
