Bag the Leaf October 22 - November 23

Post Date:10/12/2018

Eagle Mountain City is again offering our Bag the Leaf program for fall. Residents are encouraged to clear leaves and other debris from the tops of catch basins abutting their property during the fall leaf collection period to help prevent localized flooding conditions during the fall and winter months. 

The success of the City's leaf bag collection program depends on the cooperation of our residents. Without your participation, the City would not be able to provide an efficient and cost effective leaf collection program. This is an opportunity for all of us to keep Eagle Mountain City clean, safe and beautiful. 

Following are details about the program:

  • The City will provide free leaf bags to residents from October 22 through November 16. Pick up at the reception desk at City Hall (1650 E. Stagecoach Run).
  • Place filled bags at curb through November 19. Leaf bag collection will occur once per week on weekdays through November 23. Residents only need to notify the storm drain department if bags have not been picked up by the end of the following week.

Program guidelines:

  • City-provided bags as well as other small to large plastic garbage bags may be used.
  • Bags shall not exceed 40 pounds and must contain leaves only. Heavier bags will not be collected.
  • The City will not collect any bag(s) that contain household waste, green waste, branches, limbs, rocks, animal waste, dirt, sod or other restricted bulky waste. If a bag contains any unacceptable materials, crews will place a notice on your bag(s) and leave them for you to remove.
  • Place your bag(s) curbside. Bags should not be placed in the street, gutter, ditches, or any drainage way.
  • Leaves should not be raked into the street. Homeowners/renters will be subject to fines for placing debris in the roadways.

If you have questions, please contact Larry Diamond at the Storm Drain Department at ldiamond@emcity.org
