City asks Spokane residents to move cars during leaf pickup

SPOKANE, Wash.- City of Spokane crews are scheduled to begin leaf pickup activities Tuesday, Nov. 3, running until mid-December. The crews will begin on Spokane's North Side and move south to Spokane's South Hill.

Although not all the leaves have fallen from the trees yet, crews need to begin leaf removal efforts now to try to beat any snowfall. Streets cleared of leaves provide safer driving conditions during winter snow and ice. Removing leaves from the streets also helps prevent clogged storm drains.

City officials are asking you to move your vehicles from the streets when leaf pickup crews will be in your neighborhoods. Getting vehicles off the streets allows the crews to provide the best possible leaf removal service for citizens.

The leaf pickup schedule for Nov. 3 through Nov. 5, from 6 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. is as follows:

Tuesday, Nov. 3-

  • Woodridge Area: south of north City limits, north of Barnes Rd., west of Wieber Dr., and east of Comanche Dr.
  • Driscoll Area: south of Wellesley Ave., north of Garland Ave., west of Belt St., and east of Northwest Blvd.
