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

This service is scheduled to start several weeks after the start of the autumn fall so we can collect as many leaves as possible.

Note that bulk leaf-fall sweeping dates take precedence over the regular residential street sweeping service days.

How you can help us

  • Avoid parking on the street on your sweeping days.
  • Bag-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.
