KAUKAUNA — Leaf pick-up in the city of Kaukauna has been extended through next week, according to a social media post from the city of Kaukauna.

Crews will finish this week’s route, including alleys, on Monday, Nov. 14, 2022.

Then, they will attempt to take another pass through the city to collect leaves as long as weather permits.

Rake leaves only onto the terrace at the edge of pavement. Grass and garden debris will not be picked up.

Property owners are asked to rake leaves in low piles so if children are playing in them, they cannot be hidden from motorists’ view and close to the curb so as not to interfere with traffic.

Leaf equipment can only reach 6′ so this is important to keep crews moving through the routes.

Do not put leaves in gutter, because they will plug the sewers.

Give collection crew equipment room to work. Don’t park close to leaf piles as city equipment is long and can’t get the collection hose to piles if cars are in the way. Piles with cars in the way will not be collected.

Try to keep piles away from trees and mailboxes to minimize the opportunity for property damage.
