Eugene’s leaf program dates back to the 1960s. Initially a basic flood-control service, the leaf program has evolved over the years to include significant benefits in the areas of water quality, natural resource recycling and community service.
Although Nov. 16 is the formal start of collection and delivery services, City sweeper crews have been vacuuming priority bike lanes for several weeks. Crews will be working in the Central zone. West of Hilyard Street, East of Chambers Street, between 6th Avenue and 28th Avenue, to 29th Avenue. South zone leaf collection has not yet begun.
Eugene’s leaf program is funded by stormwater fees because proper use and disposal of leaves keeps decaying leaves out of local creeks and rivers and helps prevent localized flooding caused by blocked storm drains.
Eugene residents can look up their address and see when collection is scheduled on their street and order leaf deliveries (nearly 75% of the leaves collected from streets goes to local residents who value leaves as mulch and compost material).
