The City provides a leaf vacuum service for leaves raked to the edge of the yard.  Leaves should NOT be raked into the street or on the curb as this causes clogging issues within the City's drainage system. Those who rake leaves into the street or on the curb are in violation of City ordinance and subject to citation.  Alton Public Works will operate the vacuum trucks in each ward according to the following schedule:

Ward 1:  12/7/2015   to 12/11/2015
