Fall foliage over a creek

College personnel will begin vacuuming leaves at leasehold and rental properties on your street/lane/road starting the week of November 13, 2023 (dates are tentative, weather permitting).

They will vacuum leaves that are raked and piled at the curb on or before the scheduled pick-up days listed below. Piled leaves only, no bagged leaves, brush/branches, or tree limbs please. Leaves placed at the curb after the scheduled areas have been completed for the season the week of December 10 will not be picked up and removal will be the responsibility of the leaseholder.

Please be aware the mechanized leaf equipment will be loud, but the impact will be transient.

Please do not park on the roads in the areas listed on the days scheduled because it will prevent the staff from doing their work. We will be working with Safety and Security to minimize parking on Raymond Avenue on Tuesdays.

If the schedule changes substantially, we will send out an updated schedule. Please remember this is a tentative schedule, and weather pending.

Please have all cleanups done and out to the curb by Sunday, December 10. Last pick up will take place the week of December 10. 

Please note, College Ave, Collegeview Ave, Old Silvermine Pl and Lockwood leaf pick up (not clean up), is performed by the Town of Poughkeepsie (see their schedule), we are Ward 6.
