The Town of Wheatfield Highway Department offers leaf pick up for town residents in the Fall. We start on the east side of town and work our way west and will make as many passes through town as possible during leaf pick up operation, Weather and time permitting. There is no set schedule for streets through out town. Leaf season usually run about 6 weeks and start and end dates are determined upon leaf drop and snow fall. Residents who choose to hire a lawn service contractor to rake leaves, are responsible for disposal! "NOT THE TOWN"
Leaf Pick Up FAQ's
1. How do I put leaves out to the road?
Please only rake leaves only out to the curb/roadside. (DO NOT mix in Branches, Shrubs, or Grass Clippings in with your leaf piles as this will damage the machine).
2. How far out to the road do I need to rake my leaves?
Our leaf machine can only reach a little more than 6 feet from the roadside. So please get your leaves as close to the road as possible for pick up. (Placing leaves in the road, gutters and drainage ditches significantly slows down the entire operation. It is against the law to place leaves or any debris in the road.)
PLEASE DO NOT PLACE LEAVES BEHIND MAILBOXES, SIGNS, AND/OR OTHER OBSTACLES THAT THE LEAVE MACHINE CANNOT REACH AROUND.
Please be patient with us during our leaf collection process, as all leaves do not fall at the same time, and we do not know what to expect with the weather conditions.
