Eagle Mountain City is again offering the Bag the Leaf program for its residents this fall.

The City will provide free leaf collection bags from Oct. 19 through Dec. 10 while supplies last. Residents may pick up bags at the City Hall Utility Billing office from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday – Friday. Residents are also free to use their own large plastic garbage bags.

In addition to removing leaves from private property, residents are encouraged to clear leaves and other debris from the tops of storm drains adjacent to their property during the fall leaf collection period to help prevent localized flooding conditions during the fall and winter months.

Curbside pickup will be performed on weekdays through Dec. 10 by the storm drain crews as they drive through the neighborhoods checking for leaf bags. Bags will be picked up as soon as possible.

Bags shall not exceed 40 pounds and must contain leaves only. Heavier bags will not be picked up. In addition to the weight restrictions, the City will not collect bags 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 it and leave it for the resident to remove.

Bags should be placed curbside. They should not be placed in the street, gutter, ditches or any area where drainage takes place.

If you have any questions, please contact Larry Diamond at ldiamond@emcity.org.

If residents observe any illegal dumping in storm drains, or any materials in storm drains that may cause a blockage, such as sticks, leaves, bags, or other items with the potential to cause flooding or a hazardous material situation such as oil, animal waste, or household cleaning products, please contact the hotline at 801-789-5959, option 5.
