Leaf Collection in Nelson

Leaf Block Signage

October 27, 2021
Each fall, City crews remove leaves that have fallen from City boulevard trees. We do not remove leaves from sidewalks. Please do NOT call to request leaf pickup for your individual property as City crews will be working through the city on a neighbourhood by neighbourhood basis to complete the leaf removal.
What should residents do?
Residents should rake the leaves from their boulevards to the edge of the street against the curb. If heavy rains are in the forecast, we ask that you wait for fairer weather to move your leaves, so as to avoid clogging catch basins and potentially causing flooding.
If you are able to move your vehicle away from where the leaves are on the street, this will help our crews to better remove the leaves. In areas of the city where there are a large number of parked cars and mature trees, temporary “no-parking” signs will be posted on sandwich boards to inform you of upcoming work. 
As a general rule, we ask that residents with off-street parking, park their vehicles off the road. If you must park on the street, and where possible, residents are asked to follow the “odd” and “even” parking rule; meaning that on “odd” numbered days you will park on the odd side of the street and on “even” numbered days you will park on the even side of the street. 
Thank you for your co-operation.
Questions? Please call Public Works at (250) 352-8238.
