Leaf pickup in the Eugene-Springfield spot is set to start.

Leaf preparing guidelines

Areas controlled by Lane County and Eugene make it possible for leaves to be piled in the roadway if they are at least 15 toes from parked autos. Residents must not bag the leaves.

In Springfield, leaves will need to be placed on the curbside in medium-sized trash bags containing only leaves. Leaves should not be piled in bicycle lanes, streets or on curbs.

In county-controlled locations, pickup is furnished for paved control-and-gutter streets only.

In Eugene, leaves will be picked up on unimproved streets if equipment can arrive at the piles from the hard-highway floor. Leaves are not picked up from in just private yards.
