ALTON - The City assists residents with leaf removal after the Republic Service collection at the end of November by providing a leaf vacuum service if leaves are raked to the edge of the yard.

Leaves SHOULD NOT be raked into the street 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 receive a citation.
