Fall Leaf Pick Up
The City of Allegan’s 2019 Fall Leaf Pick Up is scheduled from Monday, October 7 to Sunday, December 1. City residents may place leaves at the edge of the street for the Department of Public Works to pick up. Placement of leaf piles at the streets edge can only occur during this time frame.
The leaf piles need to be within 3 feet of the edge of the road for the vacuums to reach. Leaf piles cannot be placed near utility poles, guy wires, hydrants, mailboxes, or other obstructions. The leaves need to be placed close to the edge of the road, but cannot block storm drains which can cause flooding.
On Monday of each week during this time frame, the Department of Public Works will begin on the main streets and then move to the side streets throughout the week.
*The City will NOT be picking up brush during the Fall Leaf Pick Up. Leaf piles with brush mixed in will not be picked up. A drop off site for brush is located at the Department of Public Works, 691 Airway Drive.
