Find the 2021 Curbside Leaf Pickup Schedule below:
The Town of Cumberland will once again provide curbside leaf pick-up throughout the Town. This service is intended to make it more convenient for Town residents to dispose of leaves in an environmentally friendly manner. All leaves collected by the Town are composted and will be available for use by residents next summer.
At the current time, we expect the 2021 Leaf Pick-Up Program to begin on Monday, October 18th and end on Friday, December 10th, however, at that time a survey of the leaf situation will determine if the schedule will be extended.
In order to make sure that the Town’s leaf vacuum is not damaged, it is very important that no limbs, brush, rocks or other debris be mixed in with your leaves. If such material is present, the Town will not pick-up the leaves at that location.
The Federal Clean Water Act has changed the way the Town must manage the Town’s Storm Water Sewer system. Under the Federal Clean Water Act you are prohibited from raking leaves into the street where they impact the Storm Sewer System and the Town is responsible for enforcement of this provision.
This is why the leaves in front of your property may not be picked up until they are removed from the street if you have street drainage or Swales if you have ditch drainage. If the leaves are not removed from the drainage area you may be subject to additional penalties, including a fine.
As in the past, leaves should be raked into a row at the edge of the road so that our leaf vacuum can reach the leaves. Leaves that cannot be reached will not be picked up that week.2021 Curbside Leaf Pickup Schedule
