Fall Curbside Leaf & Yard Waste Collection Will Be Held Monday, October 28 - Friday, November 22

Western Promenade Autumn Leaves

The City of Portland is pleased to announce that fall curbside leaf and yard waste bag collection will occur October 28 - November 22.  

Important: The leaves must be in the large, paper biodegradable leaf bags that can be purchased at most hardware stores. Just place your leaves curbside on your normal trash pickup day. Please note that bags may not always be picked up on the same day as your trash and recycling. Bags should be left out and crews will be back around to pick them up. 

Please, Don’t Just Dump It!  

Are you thinking:  It’s just leaves and grass, who’s going to care? Think again. 

Dumping leaves and grass into drainage ditches, brooks, or wetlands can cause flooding, smother the vegetation that stabilizes stream banks, and contribute to water pollution. And it’s also illegal. So, be eco-friendly and either compost that yard waste or bag it up for crews to haul away during this collection time. Our streams and wetlands thank you!
