Crews will make every effort to maintain this schedule. However, collections may fall behind due to inclement weather or heavier than anticipated loads, etc. Depending on weather and other factors, leaf collection should continue through January 6, 2023.
Residents are asked to separate leaves from other wastes (brush, demolition debris, etc.) and place them near the street for collection. Leaves should be placed behind the street's curb or shoulder fronting the homeowners' property. Please do not rake leaves into the street. Raking leaves into the street obstructs the view and passage of motorists and clogs the City's storm sewer systems.
If there is a legitimate reason the homeowner cannot place leaves behind their curb or ditch, or if there are other questions concerning leaf collection, please call the Alcoa Public Works Department at 380-4815 or 380-4800.
