UPDATE: Crews are now making the "final pass" throughout the city. No further leaves may be brought to the curb once pickup has occurred.
2012 Fall Leaf Schedule -
Holland's Annual Fall Leaf Program has been scheduled for October 6, 2012 through November 10, 2012.
Residents are reminded that only leaves will be picked up. If branches or other debris are in your leaf piles, your pile will not be picked up. Leaf piles left in yard areas cannot be picked up due to the potential damage to yards, sprinklers systems, or landscaping by the trucks and equipment used in the program. The Streets Division asks that leaf piles not be placed near utility poles, guy wires, fire hydrants, mail boxes or other obstructions that would prevent their equipment from accessing your leaf pile.
As with snow removal, leaf piles may only be left on your own property, not the property of another, per Ordinance Sec. 19-7. Please see attachment for details of the ordinance.
