Leaf pickup in the Eugene-Springfield area is established to begin.

Autumn has blanketed streets and sidewalks with fallen leaves, an annual nuisance when it will come to protection and flooding problems. County and municipal property-squander pickup involves locals to obtain up the leaves and shop them effectively ahead of they’re taken out.

Lane County has provided preparation guidelines and selection schedules:

Leaf preparing guidelines

Areas managed by Lane County and Eugene allow for leaves to be piled in the roadway if they are at least 15 feet from parked automobiles. Inhabitants must not bag the leaves.

In Springfield, leaves want to be positioned on the curbside in medium-sized trash luggage containing only leaves. Leaves should not be piled in bicycle lanes, streets or on curbs.

In county-controlled parts, pickup is furnished for paved suppress-and-gutter streets only.

In Eugene, leaves will be picked up on unimproved streets if equipment can arrive at the piles from the tricky-road area. Leaves are not picked up from inside of private yards.
