Reminder: The Leaf Truck is Coming! Holding Area Closes Dec. 19

West of Kingshighway? You are next! Find the leaf map and schedule online. Have your leaves raked to the curb before the start date for your route.

When the currently scheduled routes conclude in mid-December, the leaf truck will continue traveling the entire city in Phase 3.

The holding area for leaves you haul yourself is open through Dec. 19. Residents can bring their leaves to 453 Cooper Street (Third Street off of LaCruz across from Kasten Masonry) Monday through Friday between noon and 4 p.m. or on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  This option is for city of Cape Girardeau residents only, and no limbs are allowed.

Compost bags are available anytime and of course residents should consider mulching leaves. Visit or contact us for more information on leaf and lawn options.
