Find autumn bulk leaf collection days

On this page

During the heavy leaf-fall months - April to July - we collect the bulk of leaves along selected streets in the City of Boroondara.

The street sweeping service starts several weeks after the start of the autumn fall so we can collect as many leaves as possible. The date changes each year depending on when different species of tree drops their leaves. 

Autumn leaf-fall sweeping dates replace the regular residential street sweeping service days.

Please enter a valid Boroondara address.

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.

If there are excess leaves on the naturestrip and footpath, you can mulch them using a lawn mower and then compost them. See order a compost bin and sustainability for more information.
