Leaf Pick Up
The City of La Vergne will be collecting leaf litter for the first time from October 25, 2021 through November 30, 2021 using the City's new leaf vacuum machine. Crews will make one route through every residential street in La Vergne.
Residents can pile their leaves out by the road in front of the front yard prior to October 25 to guarantee their leaves will be picked up. Staff will have a pre-written route that they will follow but routes are not assigned specific dates to be run.
Leaves MUST be in a raked pile. Scatted leaves will NOT be collected.
Bagged Leaves will not be collected.
Any leaves piled on stone or gravel will NOT be collected.
If your leaves are not out when the crew makes their routes through your neighborhood they will not be go back to get it.
Leaves must be piled no more than five (5) feet away from the curb. The crew cannot leave the roadway and the vacuum does not have an extension. If they cannot reach the leaves they will not be collected. A trick is to lay your rake on the ground – if your rake cannot reach the pile, it is too far away.
Drainage Ditches and Storm Draines
Do not put your leaves in the drainage ditch or storm drain. If you have a ditch, pile the leaves behind or in front of the ditch line, remembering the five-foot rule. Leaves in the ditch line will NOT be collected. If you have curb and gutter, place your leaves behind the curb on the grass or on the sidewalk.
Do not put brush or garbage in your leave pile. If there is brush in the pile staff will not collect the pile.
Place leaves at least 15’ away from any property such as cars and trash cans. If the crew fears they may cause property damage they will not collect the leaves.
