Find autumn leaf collection days

The 2019 Autumn leaf collection schedule will be available towards the end of March. Please note that 2018 was the last year that we sent letters to residents advising of the autumn leaf collection schedule. Please visit our website in late March to early April to view the 2019 schedule.

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

This 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.

How you can help us

  • 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.

IMPORTANT: For your safety, you must keep clear of leaf collection and street sweeping machinery at all times.

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.
