Leaf Vacuum Schedule November 10 - November 15, 2017

IOWA CITY -- With the additional leaves that have fallen, the Streets Division will see more leaf piles. More leaf piles will begin to slow progress through each zone. We are doing our best to estimate progress. Please check back daily as schedule adjustments are likely. 

Leaf crews began the fourth pass of the City this week. Historically, the fourth pass has been the last pass for the season. After the 4th pass has been completed, we will continue collecting leaves until the program’s scheduled end date on Wednesday, Nov. 22nd. 

Please keep in mind, the continuation of the program is always weather permitting & is subject to end prematurely. We urge you to not hesitate in getting your leaves out to the curb. 

Crews will not go back for missed piles of leaves. Please make sure your leaves are accessible to crews and free of parked cars.  To guarantee pickup, please have all of your leaves at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on the 1st day your zone is scheduled. 

  • Friday, Nov. 10 – Collecting in Zone #7 + Entering Zone #1
  • Saturday, Nov. 11 – Completing Zone #1 + Entering Zone #2
  • Monday, Nov. 13 – Completing Zone #2 + Entering Zone #3
  • Tuesday, Nov. 14 – Completing Zone #3 + Entering Zone #4
  • Wednesday, Nov. 15 – Completing Zone #4 + Possibly Entering Zone #5

The leaf schedule will be updated daily and is subject to change. To receive updates via e-mail, visit and subscribe under “Service Notices.”
