Portland's urban forest is one of our smartest investments, paying economic, social and environmental dividends everyone enjoys, from cleaner air and water to lower cooling costs and increased property values. Of course, with trees come leaves – and when they fall in an urban environment, it's necessary to clean them up.

From early November to mid-December, removing leaves from our streets is critical because letting them stay on the street can clog storm drains, flood intersections and make streets slippery. Our Leaf Day Pickup program is about getting the leaves cleaned up in a way that makes a better, healthier and safer Portland.

Because some parts of the city with significant tree coverage require more service than others, residents and businesses in those neighborhoods help offset the added cost of maintaining trees through an annual leaf removal fee. Those without trees don't pay a fee. Please see the Street Leaf Removal Program Administrative Rules.

Use the Leaf Zone Locator to verify that you're in a service zone and confirm your service dates. If you are not in a Leaf Service Zone, gather your leaves and place them in your yard debris roll cart.  Please do not rake your leaves into the street. Only customers in a Leaf Service Zone who pay for the service are sanctioned by the city to rake their leaves into the street. See City Code regarding unlawful obstruction of a roadway, curb or sidewalk.

Call 503-865-LEAF (5323) to speak to a customer service representative Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., or email leafday@portlandoregon.gov.
