Autumn Leaf Collection

The City of Ponca City’s Autumn Leaf Collection will begin on November 18, 2019 and end on January 24, 2020. The City’s Crew will be working the City section by section, so it may take two weeks or more to collect the leaves due to the large volumes expected.

The City is asking residents who wish to have their leaves removed to please follow these guidelines:

  • Residents are asked to bag their leaves if possible. Bagged leaves placed in the regular refuse collection area will be collected free of charge until January 24, 2020. Bagged leaves will be picked up at the rate of 10 bags per pickup day.
  • Loose leaves should be placed within three feet of the front curb, but not in the street gutter. If leaves are raked or blown into the street gutter they may clog the storm drains. Leaves found blown or raked into the street may result in a citation (per city code).
  • No uncontainerized leaves will be collected in alleyways.
  • No mulched leaves or leaves mixed with grass will be collected except by special pickup. Remember, mulching leaves and backyard composting helps provide a rich soil for next spring.

Leaf collection will also be available by special pickup anytime during the year. Call 767-0411 for information on special pickups. Special pickups carry a minimum charge of thirty-nine dollars and nine cents ($39.09).
