For a nominal fee, Rolla residents can get their leaves picked up by the City of Rolla Parks and Recreation Department from Nov. 1 through Dec. 9.
All leaves must be curbside along city streets. No private driveways or private areas will be entered by City vehicles. Per City ordinance, no leaves can be placed in the streets, gutters or ditches. Leaves will be picked up by a large vacuum and deposited into a large dump body and trailer and then taken to the Phelps County composting site to be recycled.
Leaf pick-up will take place Monday through Friday (leaves will not be picked up after 12 p.m. Friday or during weekends and holidays). New users of this service must pay a $150 refundable deposit or leave a credit card number.
The fee is $50 per half hour with the minimum charge of $50 and all fees must be paid within two weeks of the service being completed. Credit card payments (Visa, Master Card and Discover) are preferred. Homeowners will also be required to sign a Hold Harmless Agreement. For more information, please contact the Parks & Recreation Department at 341-2386.
