Leaf pick up begins

Leaf pick up will begin Monday, October 22, 2018. There is no set daily schedule for a particular ward or area; we go to where the heaviest concentrations of leaves are in the interests of efficiency. If you are concerned about letting the leaves sit on your grass for too long, please feel free to bag them up. As long as our crews can tell the bags contain leaves, they will tear them open and collect the contents.

Please remember that this process is weather dependent. For example, we can’t effectively pick up leaves in a pouring rain.

Also, keep in mind that we only have one leaf truck to cover the City. Please be patient and we will get to each property as soon as we can.

Leaf pickup continues through the fall until either we have gotten all the leaves, or snow has started falling.

What to do with your leaves

To make use of this service, rake leaves into piles in the grassy area between the curb and the sidewalk.

Please do not place leaves in the street, as this causes problems with storm drains as well as parking and traffic concerns. City employees will not go into yards to collect leaves.

Yard-Waste Drop-off


Residents may drop off yard waste between 6:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Wednesdays and 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturdays, at the City of Elkins Wastewater Collection Plant located at 31 Jones Drive (adjacent to Robert E. Lee Avenue/Flood Control Road).
