Leaf pickup information for Athens


The City of Athens Sanitation Dept. will start leaf pickup on Nov. 7.
 The department will pick up leaves as staffing allows.


Notes about leaf pickup

  • Please do not mix limbs or debris with leaves. Piles of leaves with limbs or debris will not be picked up.
  • Please do not place leaves in the street or block drainage inlets. This will cause water drainage issues when there is rain.
  • There is not a set schedule for leaf pickup. Sanitation will start on one side of the city and work to the other side throughout the season as staffing allows.
