|Leaf Season and Leaf Collection||Department: Public Works|
With recent rains, tree leaves have fallen in massive quantities. Leaves left in the street clog gutters and storm drains, resulting in street flooding when it rains. Leaves must be placed in green waste carts or bagged and placed next to the green waste cart for collection on regularly scheduled waste collection days. Residents are responsible for leaves that fall on their property and the sidewalk bordering their property. Only those leaves that fall naturally into the street will be collected by street sweepers. Leaves cannot be piled or left in the street. For tips and information about additional services for large quantities of green waste, please visit www.stocktongov.com/leafseason or call your garbage service provider: either Waste Management at (209) 946-5711 or Allied Waste at (209) 466-3604.
