Leaves will be picked up from the street two or three times through Dec. 7.
Grab your rakes, Dearborn! Dearborn's annual collection of loose leaves raked into the streets is scheduled to begin the week of Oct. 22 and end on Friday, Dec. 7, depending on the weather. To make it easier for crews to pick up the leaves and to keep streets safer, residents are encouraged to rake leaves into the street only on the day before their neighborhood’s Public Service Days.

Vehicles must be removed from streets on these days between 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Contractors paid by residents to rake leaves must follow the same guidelines and should not rake leaves into…

Continuous discussion during 2011-12 budget talks last spring led many to believe that the City of Dearborn would very soon be nixing its leaf removal program. But budget talks Wednesday evening at Dearborn City Hall suggest that the program will remain in place for at least another year–possibly longer, if a more cost efficient model is not found. The leaf removal program allows Dearborn residents to rake leaves off of their lawns and into the streets during the fall. Bagging and pickup falls on the shoulders of the Department of Public Works. In 2011, the question was raised whether the service to residents was unreasonable, given the magnitude of recent budget cuts. Now, the program is again up for renewal as the city approaches its …
