Sanitation Department Leaf pickup and street sweeping zones
The Owensboro Sanitation Department provides LEAF SEASON- STARTS ON OCT. 21ST
We will start the systematic ,street by street leaf vacuum collection on October 22, where we will be collecting organized loose leaf piles. Please do not place leaves over water meter covers, on sidewalks or in the street. We will update the zones daily so that any vehicles blocking piles may be moved before collection. Please note of when we anticipate being in your zone and have piles ready for collection, as we not be able to return until next pass. We will make three complete passes through the city, after which we will go to call in basis for the remainder of the season. You can also bag your leaves and have them collected on your trash day or simply drop them off at the orange leaf dumpsters at the sport center.

Guide to Quality Service
- Be ready on collection day. Once crews pass through your area, they cannot return for late collections. Return collections are expensive in fuel, labor and maintenance costs.
- Place leaves curbside, in your yard, not on sidewalk or in the street
- Do not place leaves over sidewalks or other obstructions.
- Do not mix leaves with other debris or trash.
- Do not block leaves piles with vehicles.
