We have only one town in my area that does not pick up the leaves. I don't know why it is a very rich area. All of the other areas you can put them curbside for city pick up. Each town has a schedule of approximately when they will pick of the leaves from certain areas. They usually break it down into zones. We try to coordinate our schedule according to each town. Although we have found towns to be about a week behind in some cases. However we will take away leaves at a per truckload charge. It is recommended to the customer to get the city to haul them. After all thats part of what their taxes pay for.
