Leaf Collection and Delivery Program

from Eugene Public Works

Leaf collection will begin in our neighborhood at the end of November. Leaves will need to be placed out the Saturday or Sunday before leaf pick up in your area. 

Pick up is for leaves only. Do not include pine needles or other debris. After crews clear your neighborhood, Rake, Reuse, Recycle your leaves, put them in your yard waste container, or keep them on your property until the second round of collection begins in your area. See the map below or click here to find out when we will be in your area.


Leaf Collection Schedule

Collection dates are subject to a variety of factors and may vary.

  • Round 1 Leaf Collection will begin November 14.
  • Round 2 Leaf Collection will begin December 27. All leaves must be placed curbside December 24-26 to be included in the second and final collection.

Leaf Delivery Request Form

Leaf delivery is available within the limits of the City of Eugene. It is also based on availability, haul distance and adequate dump space. Loads vary in size, but are approximately seven cubic yards. Minimum delivery request is one load. Deliveries are typically scheduled to correspond to zone pick-up areas.

Bike Lane Service Request Form

Provide us with information about safety hazards in the bike lanes such as leaves, dirt, glass, vegetation or other debris. Leaves and other debris in bike lanes are hazardous to bicyclists.


Eugene’s leaf season is seasonal  (November – January). 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.
