Fall Leaf Collection Changes


The Fall Leaf Collection in the City of Grants Pass has changed and bagged leaves are no longer accepted for free during the fall leaf collection window. With the roll-out of the new city wide green-waste program, subscribers will receive a 95-gallon cart that will be picked up weekly during the leaf collection season and bi-weekly the rest of the year.

So please do not bag your leaves and place them curbside. They will not be picked up. If you do not subscribe to trash pickup with one of our providers, you will need to haul them to a transfer location.

For more details, or if your home is missed, please call your garbage provider:
