The City has extended its leaf collection season until next Wednesday, November 22nd, providing an extra opportunity for residents to rake out their leaves. To ensure your leaves are collected, residents are encouraged to have them raked out by Monday. Please note that the schedule is weather-dependent.
Public Works will start the collection of leaves this season beginning October 16, 2023, and will stop the collection effort on November 17, 2023. The leaf collection season is instituted to promote effective and efficient leaf collection services by the Public Works Department prior to the onset of the winter snow season.
Residents and business owners are encouraged to rake the leaves from the boulevard onto the street approximately two feet away from the curb. Residents should rake the leaves past the curb by the start of their scheduled weekday, to not miss collection.
In an effort to provide routine leaf service in areas throughout Kalispell, Public Works has designated areas of leaf collection for each day of the week. Please click the image at the top of the page for the map with the designated areas and corresponding days of the week for collection. Public Works will make every effort to collect leaves on the designated days, however unpredictable leaf volumes, weather conditions, and equipment failures may require leaf collection days to be performed outside of the scheduled areas.
Do not put rocks, dirt, cans, bottles, branches, and items of this nature in the leaf piles. This can cause bodily injury to personnel or bystanders and damage machinery.
As a reminder, Public Works does not perform curbside/streetside leaf collection in spring. Please contact Public Works for guidance on proper leaf disposal after the Leaf Collection Season.
