City’s fall loose leaf collection begins November 7

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Rochester’s Department of Environmental Services’ annual Fall Loose Leaf Collection Program begins on Monday, Nov. 7 through Nov. 25.

A collection schedule and interactive map can be found here. Residents can simply type their address into the map’s search engine to find out which week crews will be in their neighborhood.

Loose leaves should be raked into a pile between the sidewalk and the curb before the Monday of their scheduled collection week. It is illegal to rake leaves into the street. Bagged leaves may be placed at the curb to be collected on residents’ regular refuse collection days.
