Leaf Season 2015
The Westlake Service Department will begin collecting leaves from residential tree lawns on Monday, Oct. 12th. LEAVES ONLY - do not mix branches or grass cuttings with leaves as this will plug the machines and slow the collection process. Leaf collection will continue until Dec. 4th, weather permitting. Generally there is not more than two weeks between collections; however, poor weather conditions, heavy leaf fall and the amount of leaves being placed on tree lawns may cause longer delays. Please remember to place leaves on the tree lawn and NOT in the street.
