The City of Manchester picks up City resident’s leaves during designated times in the fall. Leaves may be put into the street 48-hours prior to your pick up time and must be there no later than 7:00am on your scheduled day. (Residents placing leaves into the street more than 48-hours in advance will be ticketed.) Leaves must be raked into windrows at least 2 feet from the curb. Remember – no bags or containers and no sticks, twigs or brush can be mixed in with the leaves. Pickup is announced on KMCH, in the Manchester Press and on the local access channel.
