The Auten Road Site does not accept brush or bulk items at these events. The Auten  Road Site is also open the 3rd Friday of each month between 11 am - 3 pm for Grass and Leaf  Drop off ONLY. 


 Leaf piles must be clear of sticks, branches, logs & other debris;

 Grass clippings, Ornamental grasses, flower potting material, branches, pumpkins & gourds cannot be picked up. Residents are encouraged to bring those items to the Auten Road Dump Site;

 Leaves should not block traffic;

 Leaves should not be piled near intersection corners; this causes sight issues for motorists/ bicyclists/ pedestrians;

 Keep leaf piles clear of drainage ways & catch basins; blocked drainage leads to localized flooding;

 Leaves should not be piled around mailboxes, power poles, fences, fire hydrants, basketball hoops or other obstacles;  Do not park on leaf piles; the heat from a vehicle exhaust system could start a fire.


 Do rake leaves to the edge of the roadway or curb line.

 Do place leaves in a homemade bin with stakes and wire fence to contain in one area (no higher than 36 inches at the curb).

 Do Not bag leaves to be picked up. The vacuum truck will not pick up bagged leaves.

 Do Not place branches or any other debris, such as grass clippings, in the leaves. Sticks and debris clog and damage the equipment.  Do Not park vehicles in front of leaves or near leaves.

 Do Not place leaves in the roadway or ditches.
