[ARCHIVED] Leaf Pickup

2021 Leaf Pickup

The annual City of Portage Fall Leaf Pickup Program runs October 25 through December 2. Leaf collection will occur three times in each zone or until prohibited by weather. The schedule below indicates the pickup dates for each neighborhood. Property owners can read complete program details, view a collection map and use the Address Locator Tool at to determine the three collection dates for each neighborhood.

  • ONLY loose leaves or leaves bagged in biodegradable paper bags will be collected. Leaves in plastic bags (including biodegradable plastic bags) WILL NOT be collected. 
  • Residents are asked to place leaves at the curb by 7 AM on the scheduled date. 
  • Loose leaves should be raked off the grass and into the street. Leaves bagged in biodegradable paper yard waste bags should be placed next to the curb as close to the street edge as possible so as to not block traffic or bike lanes. 
  • The Fall Leaf Pickup Program is separate from the Quarterly Curbside Brush Collection Program. Brush and leaf piles should be placed in separate locations at the curb. 
  • Streets will be swept following the third and final collection, weather permitting. 
  • There is NO burn period in Portage. Burning of leaves is not permitted at any time.
