Notice 2017 Fall Leaf Collection


October 24 – November 21, 2017
The Reading Department of Public Works will be collecting leaves from all city streets. Please reference the chart for collection days and please use the following guidelines. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated and is essential for the leaf collection process to be successful.  If you have questions, do not hesitate to call City Hall at 283-2604 or Public Works Department at 283-2835.
 Residents may rake loose leaves to the curb or shoulder of the road no later than the evening before the collection date. Do not place leaves in the street, as this may cause blockage and/or other problems with the storm sewer system.
 Please separate brush and twigs from the leaves since they can cause damage to the leaf vacuum.
 No bagged yard waste will be collected after October 13, 2017 if you bag your leaves after this date you will need to take your bags to the Department of Public Works located at 180 W. Lincoln St. and place them in an orderly fashion in the designated yard waste containment area.
 In the event of an early snowfall, leaf collection will continue after the snow has been cleared, however, our collection days may be delayed.
 Please do not park in the street on collection days.
