We collect the bulk of leaves along selected streets in the City of Boroondara in Autumn - April to July.
The autumn bulk leaf collection service replaces the regular residential street sweeping service days from April to June.
Leaf collection starts several weeks after the start of the autumn. This is so we can collect as many leaves as possible. The autumn bulk leaf collection starts at a different time each year, depending on when different species of trees drop their leaves.
Prepare for bulk leaf collection days
- Avoid parking on the street on your sweeping days.
- Rake up leaves that the street sweeper cannot reach under and near parked vehicles.
- Don't rake or blow grass clippings or leaves onto the road after the sweeper has passed by.
- Make sure leaves are free of sticks, branches and rocks as they will damage the machinery.
Note: We don't sweep or collect leaves that are from your garden.
