Annual Curbside Leaf Collection Program
to Begin Soon

The City of Salina’s Annual Curbside Collection Program will be conducted from November 3 to December 31, weather permitting.

Program Participant Guidelines and Information

    Rake and pile leaves between the curb and sidewalk. If no sidewalk exists, pile leaves directly behind the curb.
    Do not place, rake or blow leaves into the street; it is a City code violation, a hazard to traffic and may prevent storm drainage systems from working properly.
    Do not park vehicles directly in front of or behind leaf piles, it makes collection more difficult.
    Leaves in alleys will not be collected.
    Leaves must be ready on the first day your zone is scheduled for collection.
    There will not be another round of curbside leaf collection this year.

Zone 1 All of the city south of Republic Ave. November 3  – November 14
Zone 2 Between Crawford St. and Republic Ave. November 17 – November 28
Zone 3 Between Iron Ave. and  Crawford St.  December 1   – December 12
Zone 4 All of the city north of Iron Ave. December 15 – December 31

City Sanitation customers can expect crews to continue collecting leaves placed in bags or yard waste carts, set alongside refuse carts on their regular trash collection day. Trash and leaves cannot be mixed; bags of leaves along with other yard waste materials are transported to a special location for compost recycling.
