The City provides a leaf vacuum service for leaves to be raked to the edge of the yard. Leaves should NOT be raked into the street or on the curb, as this causes clogging issues within the City's drainage system. Those who rake leaves into the street or on the curb are in violation of City ordinance and subject to citation. Alton Public Works will operate the vacuum trucks in each ward according to the following schedule:
WARD 2 December 4 - December 8, 2017
WARDS 3&4 December 11 - December 15, 2017
WARDS 1 & 7 December 19 - December 22, 2016
WARDS 5 & 6 December 26 - December 29, 2017
Leaf vacuum trucks will NOT return once they have provided service to a particular street. For those who miss the vacuum truck deadline or wish to have their leaves picked up sooner, PACUP will collect bagged leaves on a limited basis upon request by calling Alton Public Works. In the event of winter weather, the leaf vacuum service will be suspended.
