Leaf Burning Prohibited

Leaf burning is prohibited in Springfield. Please rake your leaves to a position inside the sidewalk. Do not rake the leaves past the sidewalk to the curb where they will clog the gutters and storm drains.

Leaves can be raked as illustrated or composted in your back yard. The schedule for leaf collection will be published on the website and social media and shown on Springfield’s Cable TV Channel.

After the scheduled collection period has passed, leaves may be bagged and put out on your regular trash days.
