Soon: 2020 Bozeman Fall Leaf Pickup Schedule
In its attempt to keep storm drains clear, the City asks for your participation in the 2019 Bozeman fall leaf collection. Though leaves help keep our city cool in the summer and make it stunning in the Fall, wet leaves can easily clog storm drains and freeze, forcing City crews to unplug frozen storm drains, taking time from performing other, essential Bozeman maintenance tasks.
Find information on Bozeman’s 2019 Leaf Cleanup Schedule:
Bozeman’s 2019 leaf roundup, collecting ONLY your leaves, will begin in Bozeman’s scheduled “core” area first. “Core” is the area directly around the downtown and radiating out for a mile or so. Core leaf pickup will begin on Monday, October 21st and run through Saturday, November 12, 2019.
Then, on Thursday, October 24th through Saturday, November 12, 2019, crews will move to collecting in subdivisions around the city. Streets in both “Core” and “Subdivision” areas will be posted with “Street Maintenance, No Parking Signs.” Look for these and move your vehicles accordingly, or they may be towed so crews can collect leaves and sweep streets directly afterward. Ensure you pack your leaves into a compostable paper bag. Then drag the bag or rake the loose leaves into the street gutter the weekend prior to your street’s leaf collection day.
Bozeman fall leaf pickup day around area schools only will be on Saturday, October 26th, 2019. Streets around Bozeman’s schools will also be marked with Street Maintenance, No Parking Signs. Without cars on the streets, City crews can collect leaves and then sweep streets around Irving, Emily Dickinson, Longfellow, Whittier, Morning Star, and Hawthorne Schools.
Wanna cleanup your own leaves? Bring your full, compostable leaf bags (NO other yard waste!) to 814 N. Bozeman Avenue, which is the City Shops, 406.582.3202, on one of these days, from 10 am to 2 pm: Saturday, October 26th; Saturday, November 2nd; or Saturday, November 9th.
