Grand Forks Leaf Collection Starts Soon

Oct 2, 2007

By Grand Forks Herald, N.D.

Oct. 3--Grand Forks Vacuum Leaf Collection will begin on Monday with crews planning to make two complete passes through town. Weather permitting, the leaf collection is expected to take 3-4 weeks to complete.

To take advantage of vacuum leaf collection, residents can pile leaves loosely on between curbs and sidewalks and away from obstacles such as trees and mailboxes. Streets and gutters must remain clear of debris. No bagged leaves or leaves placed in containers will be collected from residences.

Residents may also take yard waste to compost sites on their own through November 15th. Please remove plastic bags when depositing leaves at the sites. For listings of your local yard waste drop off sites, refer to your City Calendar & Services Guide, the city webpage at, or call the Public Information Center at (701) 746-4636.
