As the leaves begin to fall around Birmingham, it is time to remind residents of the leaf collection rules for the city of Birmingham. While it has been many years since the rules have changed, there are still many residents that forget some of the basics.
If you live in a house on a curbed street, you are encouraged to rake your leaves into the street as long as it is done on the weekend before your scheduled leaf collection day. Do not rake your leaves into the street after you scheduled pick up day.
If you live on an uncurbed street, you have to place your leaves in a brown paper bag prior to your leaf collection day. You are not allowed to rake your leaves into the street.
To find out your leaf collection schedule, please visit the City of Birmingham’s website (linked below). At this time, the dates are already posted. Please check back before getting your leaves ready for leaf collection to make sure that the dates have not changed.
