Loose Leaf Collection

The City of Graham collects loose leaves at the curb starting on the third Monday in October through the last work day in January. During this time place leaf piles within the 5 foot back of curb for automated collection. Please do not place them in bags or containers. Please do not put out limbs, bricks, furniture, construction debris, auto parts, and such in the leaf piles as they will damage the leaf truck. Please be mindful of parking around leaf piles as crews may not be able to pickup leaves. Outside the loose leaf collection period please place your leaves in the yard waste container. 

Today we are picking up leaves in Zone ____ identified as ____ (color) on the  Loose Leaf Collection Map.

Sanitation will collect loose leaf materials using the following order, Zone I (Teal), Zone II (Orange), Zone III (Bright Green), Zone IV (Purple), Zone V (Pink), Zone VI (Blue), and Zone VII (Light Green). For example, if the section above says we are currently collecting leaves from Zone II (Orange) residents living in Zone III (Bright Green) should be prepared for leaf collection soon. Once the crew finishes work in the zone listed above they will move on to the next zone in this list.
