Leaf Pick-Up begins November 12th!

Posted: 10/16/2020 2:54:13 PM
Thursday, November 12, 2020 marks the start of the City of Coeur d'Alene's annual leaf pick-up program.  Please be sure to KEEP leaves on your property until Sunday, November 1st.  After Sunday the 1st, please rake your leaves and pine needles about one foot away from the gutter/curb line to allow for water drainage.  City crews and equipment are limited, so we need your help.  Leaves will be picked up only once.  Please do not put leaves in the street after City crews have completed your area and do not include bagged leaves, branches, debris or trash.

Pick-up will start south of Sherman Avenue and move north.  We expect completion before December 4th.  Follow our progress on maps.cdaid.org/leaf.

Leaf-Fest Do's and Don'ts

  • KEEP leaves and needles on property until Sunday, November 1st.
  • Please move cars off of the street if at all possible during leaf pick-up.
  • Keep the leaves about one foot away from the curb line to allow water flow.
  • Be alert for leaf pick-up equipment traveling through your neighborhood.
  • Keep a safe distance away from leaf pick-up heavy equipment.
  • Recognize that we have a tough job to do in a very short window between when the leaves fall and when the snow flies.
  • City and private trucks are exempted from covering loads during the leaf pick-up period. Sweepers will follow City trucks to collect remaining/excess leaves.

  • Place bagged leaves in the street.
  • Mix branches, debris or other trask in with the leaves.
  • Miss the deadline . . . We only have time for one pass.
