Spring Leaf Pickup Program

April 28, 2021

As a courtesy to our residents to help with their yard clean-up needs, and to dispose of their leaves free of charge, the City of Danbury runs a Spring Leaf Pick-Up program for six weeks.  This year, the program begins on Monday, April 19, 2021 and will run through Friday, May 28, 2021.

ONLY LEAVES bagged in PAPER LEAF BAGS with NO TAPE should be left at the curbside in front of residences for the city’s Highway Department to pick-up.

NO TAPE OF ANY KIND, NO PLASTIC BAGS, NO LARGE DEBRIS, NO GRASS, ROCK, DIRT, GARBAGE OR ANIMAL WASTE, NO BRUSH or TREE STUMPS.

BRANCHES WILL BE PICKED UP SEPARATELY.  Limbs must be cut into lengths no longer than 4 feet, no limb may be larger than 4 inches in diameter.  Branches must be bundled with twine in bundles no heavier than 35 lbs.

The Leaf Pick Up program is divided by I-84; Section A is south of I-84 (zip code 06810) and section B is north of I-84 (zip code 06811).

Section A will be picked up the week of April 19th through April 23rd.  Residents in this zip code are asked to place their bags curbside Sunday evenings.

Section B will be collected the next week.  Residents in that zip code are asked to place their bags curbside Sunday evenings.

This cycle will be repeated through May 28th, 2021.

Dates for 2021 Spring Leaf Pick-up Program:

April 19 – April 23: Section A (zip code 06810)

April 26 – April 30: Section B (zip code 06811)

May 3 – May 7: Section A

May 10 – May 14: Section B

May 17 – May 21: Section A

May 24 – May 28: Section B

Pick-up dates are subject to change throughout the program depending on weather and the Highway Department’s work schedule.  Please remember:  the Highway Department tries to get to as many streets during the week as possible, however, there are times when pick-up will be held over until the following scheduled visit to your zip code.

Please be sure to follow the rules listed above for the appropriate disposal of your leaves.  Keeping our sidewalks and streets free of fall leaves is vital to keeping residents safe and for keeping our City beautiful.

Ferris Mulch accepts leaf bags as well as tree and organic yard debris, free for Danbury Citizens.
