 Forest Park does not have a leaf collection program

View "Fall Leaf 9"

The City of Forest Park does not provide leaf collection services for its residents.  There are several reasons this service is not currently provided. 

They include:

  • the cost of creating and maintaining the service,

  • the lack of any storage site for the collected leaves, and

  • the environmental problems leaves create when raked onto the curb (clogged stormdrains and drainage ditches).

If residents are found to be raking leaves into the street, they will be in violation of Ordinance 36-1974 Section 94.07 - Litter In Drainage Easements, and Bodies of Water.
