UPDATE as of 11/18/22 - Weather permitting, leaf season may be extended past the deadline on 11/18/22 on a week by week basis.

Crews will continue to service leaf removal in the designated areas per the location schedule as outlined on the city’s webpage. Residents are encouraged to contact the Public Works Department with their address after raking their leaves out.
Leaves will not be picked up outside of the Leaf Collection Season. As reminder, Public Works does not perform curbside/streetside leaf collection in spring. Please contact Public Works for guidance on proper leaf disposal after the Leaf Collection Season.
Public Works will start the collection of leaves this season beginning October 10, 2022 and will stop the collection effort on November 18, 2022. The leaf collection season is instituted to promote effective and efficient leaf collection services by the Public Works Department prior to the onset of the winter snow season.
Residents and business owners are encouraged to rake the leaves from the boulevard onto the street approximately two feet away from the curb. Residents should rake the leaves past the curb by the start of their scheduled weekday, to not miss collection.
In an effort to provide routine leaf service in areas throughout Kalispell, Public Works has designated areas of leaf collection for each day of the week. Please click the image at the top of the page for the map with the designated areas and corresponding days of the week for collection. Public Works will make every effort to collect leaves on the designated days, however unpredictable leaf volumes, weather conditions, and equipment failures may require leaf collection days to be performed outside of the scheduled areas.
