(Nov. 3, 2016) - A quarter million trees drop a lot of leaves – and when they fall in an urban environment, it's necessary to clean them up. That’s why PBOT’s Leaf Day program is so important.
From mid-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. Leaf Dayis designed to clear our streets of many of the leaves that fall as the season changes. By participating in Leaf Day, you help to ensure safer and cleaner streets for you, your neighbors and all Portlanders.
This year we made a number of changes to our program based on the feedback we heard from residents. Among them:
Leaf Day begins on November 12. Here’s how you can make the most of your Leaf Day service:
We value your thoughts and hope these changes make Leaf Day easier for everyone. As always, we would like to hear your feedback. If you have an idea or a complaint, please call 503-865-LEAF or email email@example.com.
