Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) has announced that Leaf Day service will start Thursday, November 5 and continue, covering a few neighborhoods each day, seven days a week, through Friday, December 18 with a break for the Thanksgiving holiday November 26-28.
Brochures have been mailed out to residents in the 52 leaf districts, reminding them of how the service works and providing schedule information.
Everyone that lives or works in a Leaf District should check the Leaf Day website, bit.ly/PDXLeafDay, to verify what Leaf District they are in and confirm service dates.
On the day before scheduled service, leaves should be raked into the street, street trees should be trimmed to clear the way for large trucks and vehicles are to be moved off the street or out of the District.
Cars found parked on the street on the date of service in NW Portland, Goose Hollow and Sullivan’s Gulch may be towed to clear the way for a clean sweep.
To stay up to date, people can sign up for weekly email or text reminders about the coming week’s Leaf Day service dates and districts at bit.ly/LeafDayAlerts.
