Press Release

Leaf Pickup Commences

Posted: Nov 29, 2012

The City of Tracy’s annual leaf pickup season will begin on Monday, December 3 and will continue through approximately the first week in January.

 
Residents living in areas of Tracy with large mature trees and heavier quantities of leaves may rake their leaves curbside for weekly collection. Individuals should pile leaves by 4 a.m. on their regularly scheduled garbage collection day. Please keep gutters clear of leaves.
 
Leaf piles may not include any debris such as garden materials, brush, grass clippings, cans, paper, bottles, construction materials, or animal waste. Garbage and debris in leaf piles will not be collected, as this prevents the material from becoming a part of the compost operations at the Material Recovery Facility. 
 
Residents with small trees, and thus a smaller quantity of leaves, are asked to continue to place leaves in the brown yard waste toter. The toter will continue to be collected every other week on your normal yard waste collection day.
 
Green tips: 
·         Use your leaves as mulch! Instead of raking them into the street, you can pack them around your perennials and on your flowerbeds as insulation against the cold weather. If you have a vegetable garden, spread the leaves on top of it and then rototill them into the soil to enrich it for next year’s crop. 
 
·         If you choose to put your leaves out for pickup choose the greenest way to collect them, a rake over a leaf blower.
