Leaf Collection



Due to the recently mild weather, Advanced Disposal will suspend leaf
pickup for one week in order to allow the rest of the leaves to fall.

They will not be by the week of November 10th.
The last pickup will begin on November 17th.

There is no change in your pickup day.



Leaf collection services are now being handled
by Advanced Disposal, NOT The City of Zion
