Updated Details About The Leaf Pick Up Program In Great Falls
As per usual, Mother Nature decided to throw a wrench into things and delay the leaf pick-up in Great Falls.
The updated leaf pick-up schedule will be from Friday, November 3rd, through Monday, December 4th.
Full Schedule Below👇
As we just witnessed, the schedules are subject to change due to factors like inclement weather, equipment issues, personnel availability, or unforeseen emergencies.
This year, there are some modifications to the Leaf Pickup Schedule, so it's essential to read this notice thoroughly to stay informed.
To ensure a smooth operation, here are some tips for placing your leaves:
- Please deposit your leaf piles within the boulevard nearest to the street side. Avoid placing leaves close to the sidewalk or in the gutter.
- Do not encircle parked vehicles with leaf piles, as the new machines require a minimum clearance of 2 feet from any obstacle.
- Avoid placing leaves around tree bases, signs, light poles, or other obstructions.
To prevent traffic congestion and storm drain blockages, we kindly request that you deposit leaves on the boulevard next to the curb and refrain from putting them in the street gutter. Piles obstructed by rain, snow, or vehicles driving over them make it impossible for crews to collect the leaves.

Additionally, piles that contain branches, grass clippings, garden waste, or pet waste can cause damage to the equipment and will not be picked up.
Ensure your leaves are ready on the boulevard by 7 a.m. on your scheduled pickup day, as crews will not backtrack for collection on the same day if leaves are not prepared.
Please remove vehicles from the street and avenue on your scheduled pickup day to allow for effective vacuuming and street sweeping.
The Forestry crew operates from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. daily.
