DEPARTMENT: Department of Public Works

SUBMITTED BY: Richard Dublinski, Director

BOARD/COMMISSION REVIEW:
N/A

BACKGROUND:
The Department of Public Works - Operations Division (DPW) provides annual curbside leaf collection services. The current bulk curbside leaf collection program is structured so the entire city has three collection opportunities during the season, which equates to one pickup every two weeks. The program historically begins six weeks prior to Thanksgiving Day and every other Monday (first, third and fifth weeks) a new collection cycle begins.

The city is divided into 20 leaf districts and has historically contracted out districts 8, 10, and 12, with the remainder of the districts managed by DPW staff. In August 2021, DPW issued Bid 21-274, Curbside Leaf Collection Services to hire contractors to provide leaf collection services in districts 8, 10, and 12.
