Curbside Leaf Collection Begins October 29th
BANGOR, MAINE – Leaves will once again be picked up curbside this year beginning Monday, October 29, 2018. Loose leaves should be raked to the edge of the road where crews can collect them with large vacuum units.
Please exercise caution so that rocks, branches, yard waste, and other debris is not included in the loose leaf piles as they may plug the vacuum hose, damage the vacuum unit, or injure Public Works employees. Crews will make several passes through the city until all leaves are picked up.
Brush, branches, yard waste, and leaves may also be brought to the Bangor Public Works Compound at 530 Maine Avenue, Monday through Sunday during daylight hours. For more information on leaf collection, please call 992-4500.
