Leaf Collection Program Begins November 14

Pocatello

With the ground now colored with varying shades of gold, red, and orange, the City of Pocatello Sanitation Department’s leaf collection program is set to begin. For 2016, the effort will begin November 14 and wrap up December 2. This year sees the department tack on an additional week of collection time. “What we’ve seen and heard from residents is that even into late November, leaves are still clinging to the trees,” said Debbie Brady, Recycling Coordinator. “By adding one more week, we hope to get that last bit of leaves into the collection program and keep them out of the landfill.” Leaves that are collected are taken to Bannock County’s compost collection area where they are utilized as a material in the creation of compost. Given their final destination, the department will only be accepting leaves in compostable bags. The bags can be purchased at local stores in the area. Leaves that have been left on the curb in plastic bags will not be picked up and residents are asked to put leaves in plastic bags in their regular trash autocart. The leaves will be picked up on residents’ regularly scheduled trash pickup days. Residents who are part of the City’s yard waste collection program do not need to use compostable bags and are asked to put the leaves directly in their yard waste autocart. If a residents has more leaves then their yard waste autocart can hold, they are asked to place the leaves in compostable bags and place them on the curb on the regularly scheduled trash pickup day.
