City of Niles 2023 Leaf Collection is tentatively set to begin on Monday, October 30, in Ward 1. The leaves are collected one ward at a time, starting the program in a different ward each year.
Please follow these few simple rules:
-Rake leaves to the back of the curb and not onto the pavement.
-Leaves must be raked out in advance of the pickers. Leaves raked out afterwards will not be picked up.
The goal is to go around the City two complete times, weather permitting. It's important to rake as many leaves out as possible in advance of the first pick up, since the second time around may be halted or delayed by bad weather. Normally, the crews work ten hours per day, Monday through Saturday. It is always our goal to complete the entire program prior to December 15th, again, weather permitting. Should you not be able to rake your leaves out in time to be picked up by the City, you may take them to the Southeast Berrien County Landfill, 3200 Chamberlain Rd., Buchanan, and dispose of them. There is no charge.
