Program starts mid-October and runs through mid-December
The Leaf Removal Program is a helpful service that the City provides to its residents. The programs gives residents the opportunity to conveniently dispose of leaves. These efforts also help to eliminate excess leaf build-up along City streets and reduce negative impacts affecting our water quality. Leaves collected during this program are taken to the Mesa County Organic Materials Composting Facility where they are recycled and turned into compost. Over 10,000 cubic yards of leaves are collected annually!
The City is divided into five different areas, with specific rake-out dates assigned to each. Rake-out dates are the day by which you must have your leaves at the curb by 7 a.m. Place leaves 18 inches from the curb or directly on pavement if no curb or gutter. Leaf pick up may be affected by weather and rake-out dates can be found here. A post card is mailed to City residents the first week of October. These post cards are specific to residents in each area and contain only the rake-out dates for that area. Please keep this post card so you can refer back to your scheduled rake-out dates.
