The Department of Public Works is currently finishing the first round of pickup of leaves in South Olean and East Olean. We will begin a second round of City-wide leaf collection starting Monday, November 9, 2020. Please keep in mind it takes approximately two weeks to do a full circuit of the City.

Leaves only (no tree limbs, branches, ornamental grass, or potted plants) will be collected from the pavement and loaded mechanically into dump trucks for removal.  The order of collection will be as follows:

The public should refrain from parking vehicles on such streets anticipating a collection. The City will make every attempt to perform a second round of collection to get as many leaves picked up as possible. However, we make no guarantee that will be able to happen before the weather changes so the public is encouraged NOT to place more leaves in the roadway after the first collection has been finished as doing so can interfere with drainage and plowing operations..

Questions regarding the leaf collection schedule should be directed to the Department of Public Works, 376-5650.
