Leaf pickup with a street sweeper

The Fall Leaf Cleanup Project was started to keep as many leaves out of the storm drains as possible.  When the leaves enter the storm dratins, they can plug and then freeze during the winter months which can damage the drains.

Fall 2016 Leaf Cleanup Project will start in the core area of Bozeman on Monday, October 24th and in the subdivisions on Thursday, October 27th.  The cleanup crews strictly pick up leaves; no brush, garden or yard waste will be collected.

A small crew will work on Saturday October 29, 2016 to pick up and sweep around Emily Dickenson, Hawthorne, Irving, Longfellow, Morning Star, and Whittier Schools.  Please pay attention to the No Parking Maintenance Signs that will be put out around the schools.

There is such a small time frame between the leaves falling from the trees and the snow flying that crews work simultaneously in both areas.  Please keep in mind the completion of this project is contingent on the weather, the crews that work the leaf collection are also the crews that plow the streets.

Bozeman Core - Begins October 24, 2016

  • Watch for street maintenance signs.  We'll need you to move your car off the street for a day so we can sweep leaves out of the street
  • Rake your leaves into the guter the day before scheduled pickup (or first thing that morning).  Please wait to put your leaves into the street  sowe we can get to them before they clog storm drains

Bozeman Subdivisions - Begins October 27, 2016

Do It Yourselfers
If you miss your day or want to rake ahead, you can bring leaves to us.  A compost truck will be available from 10am to 2pm on three consecutive Saturdays, October 29th, November 5th, and November 12th to accept the leaves at the City Shop Complex at 814 N. Bozeman Ave.

Thanks for helping leave our strom drains clear!  If you have any questions regarding this project please feel free to contact the City Shops at 582-3202.
