2018 Fall Leaf Collection
The City of Jonesville will collect fall leaves for City residents, beginning the week of October 8th. The Department of Public Works (DPW) will make several passes through town with the leaf vac, with the final collection scheduled for the week of November 12th. We appreciate your help in following these guidelines so that we can provide this service to all residents. Leaves may be raked to the edge of the curb or to the shoulder of your street in piles, beginning the week of October 8th. The last leaf collection is scheduled for the week of November 12th. Please rake all leaves to the curb no later than 7:30 a.m. on Monday, November 12th. It is difficult to predict when the vac will be in your neighborhood. The speed of the collection is dependent on a number of factors, including the quantity of leaves raked in an area and the weather. Some neighborhoods may get picked up twice in a week and others once every other week, depending upon conditions.

2018 Fall Leaf Collection Policy
If the leaf vac passes through your neighborhood before November 12th, there will be a final collection the week of the 12th. Be careful to keep leaves away from storm sewer catch basins that can become clogged by leaves, and cause flooding in the event of rain. Brush, twigs, rocks, walnuts, and concrete can damage the leaf vac and delay leaf collection. Please separate these and other similar items from leaf piles. Leaves will not be collected if these items are found in the leaf pile. Leaf collection is dependent upon the weather and the season. We appreciate your patience if we have to adjust the program and extend the collection season to address conditions.
The Weekly Yard Waste Collection will continue until October 25th. Please separate all yard waste, branches, twigs, rocks, dirt and other debris from leaves to avoid damage to the leaf vacuum. And please continue to follow all Yard Waste Collection guidelines, including bundling, barreling and bagging materials.
