The leaf collection season begins Nov. 1 and concludes Feb. 1.
The Public Service Department crews will visit your neighborhood
several times to vacuum your loose leaves.
Please rake your leaves to the edge of the street in an unobstructed
area for easy collection. They should be placed in piles at the
curb rather than in rows.
Leaves raked to the alley are collected last.
The plastic bags used to hold bagged leaves compromise the mulching
process, therefore bagged leaves are collected separately in January.
But remember, 5 bulky items can be placed by your garbage can each
week for collection, and this includes bagged leaves.
If you have questions about leaf collection call the 3-1-1 or 865-215-4311.
season the City of Knoxville collected over 7,000 tons of leaves
that were processed for mulch at Shamrock Organic Industries. Residents
and businesses can call 865-524-0109 to purchase mulch from Shamrock.
