City of Milton Leaf Collection

The city collects leaves at the curb in the fall. In 2016, the dates are anticipated to be October 17 - November 13.  Leaf collection has been delayed due to an unexpected repair to the vacuum system.

The following rules apply for fall collection of leaves:

  • Rake the leaves into the curb area of the street at any time during the leaf collection period.  
  • Do NOT put grass clippings, brush, twigs, garden waste, or pumpkins in the curb area.  These materials clog the vacuum system used for leaf collection and delays the process.  
  • Collection will occur as weather permits.
Yard waste and garden materials can be taken to the yard waste collection at the Public Works Facility, 150 Northside Drive.

Brush collection will be taking place from October 17th - October 24th.
