LEAF BURNING INFORMATION

The burning of leaves is permitted on WEDNESDAYS and SATURDAYS during the months of OCTOBER, NOVEMBERDECEMBER, and from APRIL 15 through MAY 30 from 10:00 A.M. until 6:00 P.M.  The burning of anything other than leaves, plants, or shrubs is a violation of City ordinance. It is illegal to burn trash, garbage, or other disposables at any time. The Police Department tickets violators. Burning leaves on the street damages the asphalt. Leaf burning must be done in a container.

In the Fall, the City provides a leaf vacuum service for leaves 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. Leaves raked into the street or on the curb are a violation of City ordinance.
