Leaf VAC Schedule

by Public Works posted Nov 10 2020 1:18 PM

The City assists residents with leaf removal after Republic Services stops yard waste collection in the end of
November by providing a leaf vacuum service if leaves are raked to the edge of the yard. Leaves should NOT
be raked into the street on the curb, as this causes clogging issues within the City’s storm water 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:
WARDS 1 & 2 November 23 – December 4, 2020
WARDS 3 & 4 December 7 – December 11, 2020
WARDS 5 & 6 December 14 – December 18, 2020
WARD 7 December 21 – December 29, 2020
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.
