2022 Fall Leaf Collection

University City crews will begin collecting leaves from the front curb of participating residential properties in late October. Leaves must be raked to the curb line by Sunday, the day before collection begins in your area. Trucks will only make one pass on each street during the collection week, so leaves must be raked at the curb before the scheduled collection week begins. The pick-up schedule in your area listed below:


Area                                       1st Collection Week           2nd Collection Week


West Area                             October 31                           November 28


East Area                              November 7                         December 5 


Central Area                        November 14                       December 12


Please be sure that parked vehicles do not block access to the leaves. NO YARD WASTE (gumballs, trash, small tree branches/limbs, brush, and grass clippings) - LEAVES ONLY. These are considered yard waste and need to be placed in yard waste bags and will be picked up on your regular collection day.  Yard waste bag stickers are NOT required on the bags from October 15 – December 31. If you have any questions, please contact the Department of Public Works and Parks at (314) 505-8560.
