Leaf collection

Service and Streets/BTA

Disposing of leaves after leaf collection is over

If you miss or do not wish to wait for the City of Brunswick leaf collection crew, leaves may be bagged for regular refuse pick up. And remember there are many benefits to mulching leaves into your yard and composting leaves.

During leaf collection weeks…

Please have your leaves placed as close to the street as possible without being in the street (leaf collection equipment will only reach 4’) and free of debris (grass, brush, rubbish, etc.).

For safety reasons, please do not pile leaves around fire hydrants, electrical boxes, cable/phone boxes, telephone poles, light poles or mailboxes.

Please remember exact date of leaf pick up on a particular street is not possible to predict due to weather conditions and quantity of leaves on a particular street. We ask for your patience and understanding while our service crew members work hard to provide this additional service.

When is leaf collection?


Leaf collection dates are usually announced in early autumn, the schedule being dependent on the fall weather.
