Curbside Leaf Collection to Begin on October 18th

Decorah, IA (October 12, 2021) – The City of Decorah will begin curbside collection of leaves starting on Monday, October 18th. This year, the City will be alternating through each Ward on a different day of the week. Leaf collection will occur in each Ward on the following dates:

  • Ward 1: Mondays – 10/18, 10/25, 11/1, 11/8, and 11/15
  • Ward 2: Tuesdays – 10/19, 10/26, 11/2, 11/9, and 11/16
  • Ward 3: Wednesdays – 10/20, 10/27, 11/3, 11/10, and 11/17
  • Ward 4 and Ward 5: Thursdays – 10/21, 10/28, 11/4, 11/11, and 11/18

A map of the current Wards is available on the City’s website. Leaves may be put into the street 48-hours prior to your scheduled pick-up day but not before. Leaves must be in the street before 7:00 AM on your scheduled pick-up day and should be raked into windrows on the street 2-feet away from the curb line. Please do not park vehicles within 30-feet of windrows so equipment has adequate room to safely collect the leaves. The City is reminding residents that curbside collection is for leaves only; all other yard waste must be taken to the City’s Yard Waste Site.

In addition to the curbside leaf collection, leaves can be deposited in the designated area at the City’s Yard Waste Site on Trout Run Road which is currently open from sun up to sun down, seven days per week. There will be no leaf drop off available at the Street Department this year.

Please contact the Street Department at 382-2157 with any questions.
