Leaf Pick Up

Leaf burning is prohibited in the city limits of Jacksonville.

Each fall, the City provides free leaf pick up for its residents. The Municipal Services Department picks up bagged leaves placed curbside by 8:00 a.m. on specified pick up days, usually in November.  Only bagged leaves will be picked up in either paper or plastic bags.  The leaf vacuum will no longer run on ditch streets.  

The 2023 leaf pick up begins Wednesday, November 1, 2023 and continues through the entire month of November.  Please call the Municipal Services Department at 217-479-4653 for further assistance regarding the leaf pick up program.
