The Town advises the following guidelines:

•              Have leaves at the pickup site by 7 a.m.

•              Know your route day.

•              Have only leaves in the pile for pickup, or they will not be picked up. (Neither trash,    debris, sticks, or limbs will be picked up as they damage the vacuums.)

•              Rake to the area between the sidewalk and curb.

•              Leaf pile should be no more than 6 feet in width.

•              Do NOT park vehicles near the pickup site.

•              Do NOT rake leaves around obstacles (including mailboxes or basketball goals), or into street gutters. They will not be picked up.

These guidelines are to protect DPW employees, the Town of Plainfield equipment, and personal property. Many areas are difficult to maneuver the vehicles and vacuum hoses, especially cul-de-sacs.
