Fall Gather Up

Fall Gather Up
From October 3, 2020 through November 29, 2020, City of Allegan residents may place leaves at the street edge for pick up. Placement of leaf piles at the streets edge can occur ONLY during this time frame.

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.

Brush will not be picked up during the Fall Gather Up. Please see below for brush disposal details.
