Street Department workers collect loose leaves at the curbside on a regular basis from October 26, 2020 through January 1, 2021. Salem City crews collect the leaves from West to East and once they have covered the entire city, they start the process over.

It is very important to keep all piles free of sticks, branches and any other debris!

From January 4, 2021 through March 12, 2021, City crews will collect leaves on an "as needed" basis ONLY. During this January-March time period, residents must notify the Street Department at 375-3039 to schedule a loose leaf pick-up time.

Loose leaves will not  be collected after March 12, 2021. After that time, they must be bagged or boxed in order to be picked up.
