Fall Leaf Pickup Program Completed

Friday, November 18, 2016 was the last day for residents of the City of Traverse City to place leaves in the street for the leaf pickup program.  City Streets employees have made the final pass through the city for picking up leaves.  The Streets Department has been following up the leaf pickup with street sweepers, cleaning the gutters and catch basin grates to help prevent more leaf debris from entering the storm water system, and making the upcoming snow removal more efficient.

PLEASE REMEMBER, OTHER THAN THE SCHEDULED DATES FOR FALL LOOSE LEAF PICK UP IT IS AGAINST CITY ORDINANCE TO PLACE ANYTHING IN CITY STREETS, ALLEYS OR RIGHTS-OF-WAY.

Any leaves placed in the street will subject the property owner to possible fines issued by the Code Enforcement Officer.

If you have any questions please contact Mark Jones at the number noted above.
