Leaf Collection Reminders

The Department of Public Works is looking to remind
residents of a few things as leaf collection continues in Fond du Lac. Residents can rake leaves to the
terrace to be collected by city crews – but city ordinances prohibit the
placement of anything, including leaves, in the street or gutter that may block
or clog the storm system. Residents can also compost leaves and grass clippings
– or take leaves, clippings, and other yard waste to the city site along Doty Street. The
city also asks people to not park in front of leaf piles so crews can remove
them completely. 

Residents concerned about destroying their grass with the
placement of leaf piles can also view the Leaf Collection Map on the city
website to plan when to push them to the curb.
