HARRISBURG – Due to the late leaf drop, The City of Harrisburg is extending the leaf collection program through December 20, 2019. However, if there is a major snow event before December 20, leaf collection will cease at that point in time.
City of Harrisburg Public Works Crew are continuously working to make sure the leaves are collected quickly and efficiently. Capital Region Water is in close coordination with Public Works to continue street sweeping during leaf collection.
Reminders for Residents:
- Put leaves in brown paper bags at the curb the night before street sweeping. You can buy the bags at most hardware and home improvement stores. Plastic bags are not accepted at the composting site.
- If you are unable to bag your leaves, you can pile them into the street the night before street sweeping. Please be sure not to block drains. Blocked storm drains can cause puddles or flooding when it rains.
- Please follow the posted street cleaning schedule even if your collection day is a holiday. There will be no leaf collection on holidays.
- For questions on leaf collections, please call the City at 311. For street sweeping questions, contact Capital Region Water at 888-510-0606.
