The City of Turlock Parks, Recreation and Public Facilities Department’s annual Leaf Pickup Program begins Nov. 7 . Turlock residents are encouraged to use their green waste containers for leaves and garden refuse. However, any leaves that will not fit into the green cart may be placed in the street, 18 inches from the curbside, in loose piles and not bagged. Tree limbs should not be placed in the leaf piles.
Please remember to not park vehicles in front of your residence on leaf pick-up day. Doing so prevents access to leaf collection. Further, to allow for more flexibility within the collection schedule, it is preferred that vehicles are not parked in front of residences the day prior to the scheduled collection day or the day after the scheduled collection day.
The City is divided into 10 collection zones with Fridays being designated make-up days. Leaves are collected according to the schedule through Feb. 2, 2017. To find out your scheduled pick-up day, visit the City’s website at http://ci.turlock.ca.us/streetstraffic/leafpickupprogram/. Please remember to use your green waste containers first! For questions or additional information, please contact the Parks, Recreation and Facilities Department at 209-668-5594 or visit the City website at www.CityofTurlock.org.
