Fall leaf collection will begin Monday, November 2nd in AREA B, then proceed to Areas C, D, and A. All residents can rake leaves to the street at this time. Remember to leave one foot of gutter space between leaf pile and the curb to allow a path for water to properly drain from the street.
For the safety of our crews, avoid putting pumpkins, plants, and brush such as sticks in your leaf piles, as they can cause injury, damage equipment, and slow collection. When the crews are working in your neighborhood, refrain from parking in the street.
Residents whom live on a street that is currently under construction, should rake their leaves onto their outlawn until construction is complete.
How the Program Works
The City of Midland's Fall Leaf Collection program begins when a significant amount of leaves have fallen throughout the city. The actual start date is based on weather conditions that promote leaf fall. A collection schedule using the Heavy Item and Brush Collection areas is used to determine where crews are collecting: Crews begin in Area B, then proceed to areas C, D, and A.Not sure what area you're in?

During fall leaf collection, residents rake leaves into the street, leaving at least one foot of gutter space between the leaf pile and the curb. Do not mix brush or refuse in with the leaf piles. Crews will complete at least two rounds of collection in all areas, weather permitting. Any leaves that have not been collected after the final round, must be bagged in paper compost bags or placed in the blue yard waste bin.
