10-19-20 fdl leaf collection starts monday

The City of Fond du Lac’s annual leaf collection will begin on Monday with crews starting in the northeast section of the city proceeding  in a clockwise direction.   The crews typically will be able to make three complete rounds of the city during the October and November months weather permitting.  A map will be available on the City’s website indicating the progress collection crews have made to date.  As an alternative to the collection, residents may haul their leaves to the City’s yard waste drop off site located on the north side of the Municipal Service Center located at 530 Doty Street.

 Leaves should be raked in rows next to the curb for collection by City crews.

 As are REMINDER City Code prohibits leaves and other materials to be placed in the street or sidewalks.

 City crews will not pick up leaves in plastic bags.

 Park vehicles and garbage carts away from leaf windrows.

 Your garbage cart is for garbage only. Do not place leaves inside the automated garbage collection carts.

 Cut garden material such as vines and corn stalks into lengths of one foot or less.

 Fruit and vegetables (such as apples or pumpkins) will not be collected. These should be disposed of at the City’s yard waste drop off site on Doty Street.

Some streets are still under construction at this time. City crews will make every effort to get in to those areas still under construction, or will make a thorough cleanup later in the season after the construction is completed.
