Leaf collection occurs this year from October 10th through December 9th. Use the street search at the bottom of this page to find your area. The number that appears for "Leaf" corresponds with the assigned area for that street. Please view the Leaf Collection schedule below to determine which dates your leaves will be picked up. Leaf bags must be out at the curb the day before your assigned pick up.
This year, from October 10th through December 9th, the Town will pick up leaves. The accompanying map outlines the dates for collection in your area, and is based on a two week rotation schedule. Depending on the need and the weather conditions, the town will add an additional rotation after December 9th. The program calls for residents to place leaves into paper bags to be collected by the DPW.
An alternative to paper bags is the use of 30-gallon garbage cans with handles provided that (1) the container does not weigh more than 50lbs and (2) the container is tagged and identified in such a way that crews will know it contains leaves. Experience has shown that, particularly on refuse collection day, it is very difficult to know what is in the container. While it is recognized that the use of containers is an alternative, residents are reminded that once frozen, the containers may be susceptible to damage.
Another alternative is for residents to dispose of their own leaves at one of the Town's drop-off sites. The five sites are identified below. The sites will be open throughout the leaf program. The drop-off site locations will be identifiable by a snow fence. The Yard Waste Management Facility has signs indicating the leaf drop-off site. No plastic bags, brush, or containers are to be left at any site.
Please Note: The Town of Greece does not collect leaves from private drives. For those living on a private drive, please bring your leaves to the nearest drop-off location -
