Leaf Disposal

The City of Greenville's Leaf Vacuuming program is held in the spring and fall.  Residents are asked to rake their leaves to the edge of the curb or edge of the road so the vacuum can reach them. Please keep piles no higher than three feet and make sure sticks, brush and other debris are not in the piles as it could cause the machine to malfunction. Dates for Fall 2023 will start Monday, October 16 and run through December 15, weather permitting.

Mulch leaves in place with mower blade attachment or place your leaves in a compost bin for on-premise composting.

Leaf burning is only permitted with a Leaf Burning Permit, on private property, not on any public street, sidewalk or alley.  Burning leaves in such a manner as to allow the smoke to blind passing motorists is not permitted.

No burning of leaves shall occur on any legal holiday during the burning season.  With the City collecting leaves, we suggest that burning not be used.

Leaf Burning Permit Applications are available to print on line below, or you can come to the Municipal Building for an application. You will be issued a permit for your records, and a copy will be kept on file at the Municipal Building.
