Leaf Pickup

Leaf Pickup


The Town of Cumberland provides curbside leaf pick-up throughout the Town. This service is intended to make it more convenient for Town residents to dispose of leaves in an environmentally friendly manner.  All leaves collected by the Town are mulched and will be available for use by residents next summer.
 
In order to make sure that the Town's Leaf Vac is not damaged, it is very important that no limbs, brush, rocks or other debris be mixed in with your leaves.
 
If such material is present, the Town will not pick-up the leaves at that location.
 
The Federal Clean Water Act has changed the way the Town must manage the Town's Storm Water Sewer system.  Under the Federal Clean Water Act you are prohibited from raking leaves into the street where they impact the Storm Sewer System and the Town is responsible for enforcement of this provision. This is why the leaves in front of your property may not be picked up until they are removed from the street. If the leaves are not removed from the street you may be subject to additional penalties, including a fine.
 
As in the past, leaves should be raked into a windrow at the edge of the road (not in the side ditch, not on the road) so that our Leaf Vac can reach the leaves. Leaves that can not be reached will not be picked up.
 
In the event of inclement weather, equipment breakdown or other situations beyond our control, leaf pick-up will remain on schedule by day of week and area to be serviced. As time allows, we will attempt to go back and service those areas that may have been missed on regularly scheduled days.
