Alton Public Works releases leaf vacuuming schedule
ALTON - The City of Alton provides a leaf vacuum service for leaves to be 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 onto the street or on the curb are in violation of City ordinance and subject to citation.

The City of Alton will not provide vacuum service after January 9, 2017.
