Residents are asked to rake leaves into low piles, taking care not to cover catch basins or not to place them too far out in the street so as to cause a traffic obstruction. On High and Pickard Streets, where high traffic volume prohibits leaves in the gutter, residents should rake the leaves onto the right-of-ways between the curb and sidewalk. Residents who live on streets other than High and Pickard should rake leaves into low piles in the street gutter.  This collection is for leaves only, yard waste bags must not be used.  Leaf piles must not contain garden or shrubbery clippings, dead grass, branches, trim board or other material.
