LEAF-FEST 2021

Posted: 10/7/2021 3:57:47 PM

Crews will begin pick-up Monday, November 8, 2021.

NOVEMBER marks the start of the City of Coeur d'Alene's annual leaf pick-up program.  Please keep leaves on your property until Monday, November 1.  After this time, leaves may be placed in the street at least one foot (1’) from the curb to allow for water drainage.  City crews and equipment are limited, so we need your help.  Leaves will be picked up only once.  Please do not put leaves in the street after city crews have completed your area and do not include bagged leaves, branches, debris, or trash.

Pick-up will start south of Sherman Avenue and move north.  We expect completion before December 3, 2021.  Follow our progress on maps.cdaid.org/leaf

When Leaf Pickup begins in your neighborhood:

Please keep your eyes and ears out for equipment.

     
•  Please move vehicles off the street.
•  Sweepers come behind the crews to clean the streets, and our goal is curb-to-curb cleaning.
•  Please do not put any leaves out after we have completed your neighborhood.


As the fall turns to winter every year street crews will begin its annual Leaf-fest. Leaf Pickup historically will generate over 1400 tons of leaves from all corners of town.  The leaves are pulled away from the gutter of the streets where loaders will bunch them into the intersections. The leaves are shredded, to become compost.
