Leaf Collection in Cape Girardeau Starts Nov. 7

With leaves falling from the trees, it’s time for the city of Cape Girardeau’s annual leaf collection program. Residents have four options to dispose of leaves:

1. Curbside Loose Leaf Pick Up Program – Residents rake loose leaves to their curb prior to a designated start date for their “zone” (map).  Public Works crews will then come and vacuum up the leaves according to a timeline per zone. The curbside leaf program begins Nov. 7 and runs through Dec. 20.

2. Haul Your Leaves – Haul your own leaves for free to the holding area on Third Street, off of LaCruz Street, across from Kasten Masonry. Hours: Mondays through Fridays, 12-4 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., from Oct. 31-Dec. 23.

3. Compost Bags – Purchase compost bags from City Hall, Public Works, Schnuck’s, or Food Giant. Price is $6.25 for a bundle of 5. Call Public Works at 573-339-6351 to arrange a Wednesday pick up.

4. Mulching – Mulch your leaves back in to your lawn, adding nutrients and improving lawn health.
