LEAF CLEANUP 2020

share

Leaf Cleanup is underway!

The purpose of the leaf cleanup program is to remove leaves from the roadways and gutters so that they do not impede the flow of storm water, causing flooding or property damage. Vacuum trucks and sweepers are used in this process. Major waterways and storm sewers are given priority and receive as much attention as needed. It is necessary to clean some areas multiple times while some areas are only cleaned once.

As the vacuum trucks clean the gutters they will vacuum up loose leaves that have been raked into a pile or "windrow" along the edge of the gutter.

TO ACCOMPLISH OUR PURPOSE, WE ARE UNABLE TO SET A SCHEDULE.

Leaf cleanup typically continues until approximately the Thanksgiving Holiday, or as weather permits. The crews that perform leaf cleanup are the same crews that drive the snow plows, so if we receive measurable snowfall during this time snow removal becomes priority.

Bagged leaves are easier to manage if a windstorm comes through or we receive precipitation before we can complete leaf cleanup. Bagged leaves can be placed on the parkstrip. Crews typically start picking up bagged leaves once they have the bulk of the loose leaves cleaned up.

Even though we are unable to set a schedule you can track our crews' progress and see if your street has been visited by visiting our interactive Leaf Cleanup map. Click on the link to access the map:
https://logan.maps.arcgis.com/.../webappviewer/index.html...

Either use the zoom buttons in the top left-hand corner of the map to locate your street or simply enter your address in the search box at the top of the map. If your street has been visited, a colored line will appear along the street in front of your house. To see information about when the street crews came by, simply click on the colored line segment and an information box will appear. Please keep in mind that some parts of Logan require multiple visits, due to the density of dropped leaves within the City’s storm water system. Conversely, areas with no City street trees, or no storm water infrastructure, are lower priority.

The map will be updated at the end of each work day.
