The City of Wilmington will soon conclude this year’s leaf pick-up program. City workers will continue to make satellite pick-ups as needed through Thursday, Dec. 22. Any leaves not collected by this date will need to be packaged in the city-approved paper yard waste bags and placed at the curb with regular refuse for pick up.
Please keep in mind, leaves should be raked to the edge of the curb (between the curb and sidewalk). Do not rake your leaves into the street.
Leaves in the street contaminate stormwater runoff and also block catch basins and cause flooding. No branches, rocks, trash or other debris should be placed in leaf piles.
For questions regarding the leaf pick-up program, please contact the Wilmington Maintenance & Repair Department at (937) 382-6339.
