Rake leaves into the street (except on major streets; see below)
Leave at least one foot of gutter space between the leaf pile and the curb-this allows water to drain to catch basins and allows a more thorough collection, as leaves will not spill back onto your property.
Keep brush and refuse out of leaf piles
Do not park in the street when leaf collection is in your area
Leaves can also be placed in yard waste bins or compost bags - no stickers are required

Following completion of the final round of fall leaf collection, a street sweeper thoroughly cleans each area, weather permitting. The streets are not swept until the fall leaf collection program has been completed. Any leaves that have not been collected after the final round must be bagged or placed in a yard waste bin for weekly refuse collection.
