Village Leaf Pickup Guidelines

WILLIAMSVILLE, NY (November 2023) – The Department of Public Works has initiated its seasonal pickup of residential leaves and will continue through October, November, and December.

Please note the following per the public works’ policy:

  • Leaves must be placed curbside, in the tree lawn between the street and sidewalk, NOT in the street.

  • Leaves and yard waste cannot be placed in plastic bags.

  • The piles should contain only leaves; do not place items such as branches, sticks or other debris on or in the piles. Crew members will not collect leaf piles that contain other debris because it could cause machinery to malfunction.

  • Pick up of leaves will continue daily in the Village throughout the season unless inclement weather occurs. There is no need to call for a pickup.

  • There is not a set daily route, but the vacuum truck will reach all properties in the village multiple times during the season.

Note: At all other times during the year, leaves and similar material must be placed in an appropriate container.
