Fall Leaf Pickup
The City of Platteville Street Department will begin fall leaf pick-up in early October and will continue to cycle the city until the end of November or when snow and ice make it impossible to do so. Residents must have the leaves raked to the curb and NOT in the gutter.
Since the leaf machine only vacuums up leaves, DO NOT mix brush or other yard waste in with the leaves. These piles will not be picked up until they are separated.
Questions may be directed to the Department of Public Works at 608-348-9741, Ext. 2238
