The Department of Public Works has announced that the City of Ferndale's annual curbside leaf pickup program will begin the week of Oct. 21, 2019, and run through the week of Dec. 2.
The City provides complimentary curbside leaf pickup to residential streets each fall between mid-October and the beginning of December. Every street receives pickups according to the east-west schedule:
To have your leaves removed, simply rake them to the curb by 7:00 a.m. on the Monday of your scheduled week and DPW will pick up by the end of the week.
Scheduled leaf pickup replaces the on-demand system of the past, which means there’s no need to call and report leaf piles on your street—on scheduled weeks, DPW will service your street.
If you miss a pickup, please wait to rake your leaves out until the weekend before your next scheduled pickup week; leaves piled high or for long periods of time can create parking hazards.
Whenever possible, park away from leaf piles on pickup weeks so that DPW can access them.
