More than 30 percent of Rose City’s streets are lined with larger, more mature trees that drop significantly more leaves than the rest of the city. These streets require more equipment and crew-power to clean and maintain.

If you’re in a Leaf Service Zone, you can opt out if:
You don’t have any street trees on your property (that is, trees in the planting strip between the street and sidewalk), or
You are removing your own leaves, whether that’s bagging them for your recycler, hiring someone to rake and haul, or taking your leaves to a leaf depot yourself.

Before you opt out, did you know that this year, our Leaf Day Service will take away any tree leaves on your property, not just those that have fallen in the street? No hassle of loading and hauling leaves away yourself, and no leaf disposal fees or yard debris surcharges.
