Fall Leaf Collection Program

The Fall Leaf Collection Program will begin on Monday, October 31st and end in later November. For an approximate schedule, please view our Leaf Collection Map. This map will be updated daily, and these dates are subject to change.

The Public Works Department provides annual leaf collection in certain areas of the Village as a proactive way to prevent leaves from collecting in and obstructing the storm water drainage systems. Only areas of the Village with concrete curb and gutter storm sewer systems will be eligible for this collection program.

The deadline for placing leaves in the street is Sunday, November 20th. This program is for leaves only and does not include brush, yard waste, or other debris.

If your street does not have curb and gutter, the Village will not collect leaves in your area. The easiest and most effective way to dispose of leaves in your yard is by mulching them in place with your lawn mower. We encourage residents to mow over your leaves to chop them up into small pieces that easily pass through the grass to the soil below.  Taking one or more passes over the leaves with your lawn mower is simpler and easier than raking leaves and the small leaf pieces will practically disappear into your lawn.  In addition, leaves are rich in essential nutrients needed by plants and your yard will benefit by mowing (mulching) the leaves into your lawn.

If your leaves are not collected and you would like to remove them from your property, you can utilize your Yard Waste Permit to dispose of leaves at the Waste Management Facility located at N96W13073 County Line Road in Menomonee Falls.

Please visit our Leaf Collection webpage or contact the Public Works Department at 262-532-4700 for more information about the Leaf Collection program.
