Free leaf disposal site for downtown businesses

This fall, downtown businesses can bring all their leaves and branches to a container at the Marina Park auxiliary parking lot. There is no fee for businesses to participate. The container is unlocked and available for use on Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Please do not put any garbage, recyclables, or any other materials in the container. Only leaves and tree branches are accepted.

If you have storm drains near your business, make sure to also remove leaves/branches from the top of the storm drain grate. Leaves can block rain water from flowing into these storm drains which can cause flooding and potential damage to your property.
