Leaf program information
The Town of McCandless Fall Leaf Pick-Up Program begins Monday, October 16, 2023 and will run through Wednesday, November 22, 2023. There will be no leaf pick up on Saturdays and Sundays, or Election Day (Nov. 7). Leaf vacuum trucks and pick up of biodegradable paper bags will be used to accomplish the Town’s leaf pick up. There is no specific day for Town leaf pick up.
LEAF VACUUM TRUCKS: LEAVES ONLY are to be raked onto the curb and gutter line. No tree limbs, grass clippings, or other yard waste will be collected.
- Leaves should be spread along frontage (not onto the road) so as not to block 2-way traffic or emergency vehicle access. Please try to get your leaves as close to the curb as possible without getting onto the street. Due to the reach of the vacuum, please try to make sure your leaf pile is no more than 2 feet from the curb.
- The vacuums will pick up anything that are under them (stones, mulch, etc.), so be mindful of where you rake your leaves to.
LEAF BAGS: LEAVES ONLY are to be placed in the bags. Leaf bags should be placed as close to the edge of the road as possible. BIODEGRADABLE PAPER BAGS ONLY will be collected. No plastic bags will be collected.
