Spring 2019 Leaf and Brush Collection- Click for the SCHEDULE!! 



Fall Leaf Collection

Fall leaf collection is a very busy time of year for the Public Works Department! The leaf program runs October through December, depending on the weather.   All Public Works maintenance personnel are assigned to the leaf program, along with seasonal temporary workers that supplement the program.   These employees fill three leaf crews that perform the citywide residential leaf program where every household receives three monthly pick-ups in the fall and one Spring pick-up in the month of April.

  • The Leaf Schedule is published on the City’s website, including a listing by street of the brush and leaf sections: 
  • Reminder that brush cannot be intermingled with the leaves: Brush clogs and damages the leaf vacuums therefore the crews will not collect leaf piles with brush in them.  Damaged leaf vacuums hinder the operation and cause delays!
  • To be guaranteed a pick-up, the materials must be placed curbside no later than 7:00 am on the scheduled Monday morning of that week.   The leaf crews cannot return to a street once the pick-up for that street has been completed.   We strive to remain on schedule in an effort to provide equal service levels to all resident.
  • We could arrive any day the week of the scheduled pick-up.  With 3400 households in Ladue, and due to variables with weather, we are unable to schedule our collections on a specific day
  • Leaves CANNOT block sidewalks, storm sewer facilities, or streets
  • Spring collection is in April each year where every household gets one pick-up.  The schedule will follow the same order as the Fall collection schedule 


Brush Collection

  The City of Ladue’s Brush collection program runs monthly beginning in March and concludes in September, giving each residence seven annual pick-ups.  Every resident can place two dump truck loads curbside for each monthly pick-up which means that each resident could have 14 dump truck loads of brush hauled away annually.  Through our research, Ladue is the only municipality in the region with a program of this magnitude.  During brush collection, two-thirds of the Public Works employees are working on this program each week until collection has been completed.   A few reminders:

  • The Brush Schedule is published on the City’s website, including a listing by street of the brush and leaf sections:
  • Brush should only be placed within 10 days of the scheduled collection date
  • Brush should be placed parallel to the roadway, in lengths no longer than 10 feet and no greater than 10 inches in diameter
  • Brush CANNOT block sidewalks, storm sewer facilities, or streets
  • Brush CANNOT be placed curbside from October through February
