The Owensboro Sanitation Department will begin vacuum leaf collection on October 24, 2017 and will run through February 15, 2018.  This method of collects loose piles of leaves per zone area.


Owensboro Sanitation reminds customers to remember:

  • Don’t mix limbs, yard waste or trash with leaves;

  • Do not wet leaves;

  • Rake leaves curbside in the yard – not the street or sidewalk;

  • Make leaf piles accessible for sanitation crews by not placing piles next to parked cars, and do not block leaf piles with parked cars;

  • Do not cover up obstructions with leaf piles.


    The last week for limb collection will be October 16th – 20th. These will be picked up on your trash day.
