Kalispell city crews remove leaves from city streets during the fall.The current season runs October 15th to November 15th. Dates may vary due to weather. Leaves shall not be raked into the street outside of the leaf pick-up period. Residents and business owners are encouraged to rake the leaves from the boulevards onto the street approximately two feet away from the curb. This is important to allow the leaf machines to operate efficiently. Vehicles must be removed from curbside during leaf pickup operations.


Unfortunately, there is no set timeline for when crews will reach certain areas. Unpredictable leaf volumes and weather conditions make it not possible to know when areas will receive collection, however, crews make every effort to remove leaves as quickly as possible. Leaves will not be picked up outside of the Leaf Collection Season October 15th-November 15th.

This schedule is contingent on weather conditions, workload, and equipment availability. 

Important Notes

Do not put rocks, dirt, cans, bottles, branches, and items of this nature in the leaf piles. This can cause bodily injury to personnel or bystanders and damage machinery.

Leaves will not be picked up outside of the Leaf Removal Season. Contact Public Works for proper leaf disposal after the Leaf Removal Season.
