Free leaf drop-off begins in Springfield on October 15th. The City is working with Evans Recycling at 2100 J. David Jones Parkway this year as their free drop-off site for residents to take their bagged leaves. However, for those using the free curbside pickup, they’ll have to wait until November first.
Leaves, whether they’re dropped off or set at the curb must be in paper yard waste bags, or in a can clearly marked ‘YARD WASTE’. Bags must not be secured with any type of tape. Bags will be picked up once per week through the month of November, beginning November first.
