Curbside Leaf Collection

Leaf collection map
Curbside leaf collection service, which helps citizens dispose of leaves and ensures storm drains remain unclogged, begins Oct. 25, 2021, and is scheduled to run through Jan. 14, 2022.

Collection trucks run a route that begins at the south end of Newton, travels north in a grid pattern through the entire City, and repeats throughout leaf season. One route will require about three weeks to complete.

Residents are asked to ensure that limbs, sticks, and metal are removed from leaf piles. Yard debris other than leaves will clog or damage equipment and slow collection. Please keep leaves out of the roads by raking them behind the curb. Leaves should be placed in the utility strip adjoining your property. Leaves placed behind the sidewalk or in ditches will not be collected. Please note that the vacuum truck cannot reach leaves that are raked beside parked cars.
