The City of Great Falls 2012 leaf pickup program is scheduled to begin on Friday, October 26, and continue through Friday, November 16.
For people residing within the Boulevard District, the Natural Resources Division will vacuum leaves from the Boulevards.
The City Street Division will be sweeping streets in conjunction with the leaf pick-up.
Residents within the Boulevard District area are asked to deposit leaves on the boulevard next to the curb and not in the street gutter.
Officials ask that people do not place leaf piles in the street gutter since rain and vehicles driving on the piles make it impossible to clean up the leaves.
Branches, grass clippings, garden waste and other yard waste will not be picked up; please arrange for pickup with your sanitation provider.
Roads in each area will be cleaned on alternate days; officials ask that people move parked vehicles from the roadways on the scheduled pick-up day to allow for vacuuming as well as street sweeping.
The schedule may change due to weather conditions.
The schedule and updates will also be on the City of Great Falls website.
