CHICO, Calif. - The City of Chico Public Works Department will begin the annual leaf collection program on Nov. 1.

The purpose of the program is to prevent flooding, reduce organic loading to creeks, and keep the
roadway and bike lanes clear.

Property owners of commercial, multifamily properties larger than a triplex, and landscape companies servicing these properties cannot place leaves in the public right-of-way, according to the city.

For these properties, the city encourages the use of curbside yard waste containers, the city’s compost facility located at 4441 Cohasset road, open Tuesday through Saturday from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., or commercial leaf drop-off locations.

The commercial leaf drop-off locations will close on December 19, 2019.

The city is advising residents to do the following:

• Keep piles under 4 feet high, 1 foot away from the curb, out of bicycle lanes, and away from storm
drain inlets.
• Leaves only; no branches, prunings, plastic bags, or trash.
• Due to heavy leaf drop, street sweeping is suspended from November to January each year.

The last day for residents to place leaves in the street for collection is January 1, 2020.
