City leaf pickup crews are working Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. trying to get done before snow fall. Leaf pickup is extremely important for the safety of our streets. Please continue clearing leaves from storm drains to help prevent water from pooling up onto the street. Clogged drains can lead to unsafe conditions. In the event of snow, leaf pickup will be postponed until weather allows
The Street Department only picks up leaves that naturally fall into the street. Leaves that fall into a yard are the property owner’s responsibility. Here are some options for the disposal of your leaves:
Leaf pickup times vary for each neighborhood and can be found on the City’s Leaf Pickup page. Citizens can also call the Leaf Hotline, 509.625.CITY (509.625.2489) for information on the next day’s work areas. Leaf pickup updates are also shared via Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #SpokaneStreets.
