Fall Leaf Program-City Residents
Event Title: Fall Leaf Program-City Residents
Date/Time: Sat, Oct 1st (All day) - Sat, Nov 19th (All day)
Location: Holland City Streets
Holland's Annual Fall Leaf Program has been scheduled for October 1, 2016 through November 19, 2016.
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.
Residents with a storm drain near their home must take special precautions to not stack leaves on top of, or near, storm structures. This could lead to drains backing up, cause puddling near your home and leaves that enter the storm system pollute our waterways.
