City of Leavenworth Fall Clean-up »

Fall Clean-up 2014         

Leavenworth’s annual fall clean-up for Single – Family residents will take place this year during October 14th – November 13th.  We are asking all residents on corner lots with street intersections to prune trees for better visibility.  Leaves, pine needles, and other yard debris is to be put into plastic garbage bags, no larger than 35 gallon size, not to exceed 35 pounds, and no more than 4 bags on any regularly scheduled garbage day.  Limbs must be cut into 4 foot or shorter in length and tied in bundles. The yard debris should be out next to your regular garbage and will be picked up at the same time. There will be no extra charge for the pickup of the first 4 bags of yard waste; additional bags will be charged $3.50 per bag.  Please remember outside burning in no longer allowed.

NO furniture, appliances, dirt, rocks, or building debris will be picked up.

The Leavenworth recycling center that is located at 216 14th Street is also available. The hours of operation are Wednesdays from 4:30pm -6:30pm and Saturdays from 11:00am to 3:00pm.  This service is reserved for residence within City limits only.
