Forget? Read Below – 2021 Bozeman Leaf Pickup Fall Schedule
Specifics and dates for Bozeman’s 2021 leaf cleanup
It’s that time of year again…leaf raking.
In its attempt to keep storm drains clear, the City of Bozeman asks for your participation in the 2021 Bozeman fall leaf collection. Though leaves help keep our city cool in the summer and colorful in the fall, wet leaves can easily clog storm drains and freeze in the winter, forcing city crews to unplug frozen storm drains, taking time from performing other, essential Bozeman maintenance tasks. (Check Schedules below first and then use the map if needed.)
Bozeman’s 2021 leaf roundup, collecting ONLY your leaves, will begin in Bozeman’s “Core” areas first. “Core” is the area directly around the downtown and radiating out for a mile or so.
After finishing in the “Core” area, crews will then move to collecting in “Subdivision” areas around the city. All streets with a leaf pickup date in both “Core” and “Subdivision” areas will be posted with “Street Maintenance, No Parking Signs” a short time prior to their leaf collection pickup day.
Look for these signs and move your vehicle accordingly, or it may be towed so crews can collect leaves and sweep your street directly after leaf pickup. Ensure you pack your leaves into a compostable paper bag. Then drag the bag or rake the loose leaves into your street’s gutter prior to your street’s leaf collection day.
SCHOOLS? CALL 406.582.3202
Bozeman fall leaf pickup day in the area around our schools is for one day only. Streets around some of Bozeman’s schools will also be marked with “Street Maintenance, No Parking Signs.” Without cars on the streets, city crews can quickly collect leaves and then sweep the streets around Irving, Emily Dickinson, Longfellow, Whittier, Morning Star, and Hawthorne Schools.
