DID YOU KNOW… You can access Vandalia’s leaf collection schedule on a street-by-street basis!

With cooler weather FINALLY in the forecast, we’re expecting trees to begin the slow process of letting go of all of their leaves. That means that soon, we’ll all be raking our leaves to the curb and waiting for them to be picked up.

 
The plan is for every street to be visited by leaf collection crews at least four times over the course of the fall.
 
We always publish a map that breaks the City into zones and then lists the dates that each zone will be visited.
 
If you’re someone who has a hard time reading the map or determining your zone, you can access a leaf collection schedule online that lists the exact dates for every City street.
 
CLICK HERE for the complete street by street schedule.
