It is that time of year! Leaves are everywhere and are quite a chore to clean up. Please remember that putting loose leaves from your yard on the sidewalk, in the street or in the gutter without being bagged is prohibited. Leaves in gutters can clog storm drains and cause flooding problems.
The city has a crew that cleans the leaves out of gutters but our staff doesn’t have the capacity to remove all the leaves so we ask for help from our residents not to put leaves in the gutters. Those found depositing leaves into the gutters will be billed for the cost of cleaning them up, according to Provo City ordinance.
Leaves from your yard that are bagged and placed on the curb will be picked up by the City crews through the month of November. The pickup schedule is the same as the normal trash service day, with our crews running from 6 AM until 4 PM. This schedule will be maintained until crews transition to snow removal. Any special requests can be submitted to customer service, in order to meet additional needs.
*Update 11/19: Leaf Bags are all gone!
Please note that we still have leaf bags left and are still giving them out until they are gone. Leaf bags are available to be picked up at the Public Works office (1377 S 350 E) Monday - Thursday from 7:00 am - 6:00 pm and at the City Center Customer Service desk (351 W Center) Monday - Friday from 8:00 am - 6:00 pm to those that come in with a Leaf Bag Coupon (found in the fall Involved Magazine) or a proof of residence.
