City begins to clear streets of dead leaves

SPOKANE, Wash. - City crews will begin clearing leaves from Spokane streets on Monday, and will continue to clean the roadways through mid-December. 

Removing the leaves from the streets helps prevent clogged storm drains and make driving safer during winter snow and ice.

The City's leaf pickup service is intended to remove only the leaves that naturally fall into the streets. Residents should not rake leaves into the street. They need to be aware of the leaf pickup schedule, however, because the City is asking residents to move their vehicles from the streets when leaf pickup crews will be in their neighborhoods.

People looking to get rid of leaves in their yards can take them to the waste-to-energy facility and the solid waste transfer stations.  They will accept up to 100 pounds of yard waste for free.  A charge of 35 cents per 20 pounds is added for yard waste exceeding the 100-pound limit.

The Spokane Regional Solid Waste System says fallen leaves also make for good composting material.

The leaf pickup schedule for Nov. 10 through Nov. 12, from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. is as follows:

Monday, Nov. 10

  • Woodridge Area: south of north City limits, north of Barnes Rd., west of Wieber Dr., and East of Comanche.
