Fall is Here!

 The air is cool and the leaves are beginning to fall. The City of Oneonta will begin our leaf collection services in November. We would like to remind everyone to place their leaves near the roadway, away from storm drains and culverts. This prevents leaves from clogging any drainage areas.

Reminder - Brush pick-up is limited to grass clippings, small limbs and branches, hedges and etc. Tree and vegetation branches should not be larger than 5 inches in diameter.

The City of Oneonta's debris landfill is reaching a concerning level. The City of Oneonta has elected to restrict the dumping of debris from professional tree trimming services, thus limiting the growth of our debris landfill. Likewise, it is the City of Oneonta's Policy not to pick up trees placed on rights-of-way by professional or paid contractors unless as a direct result of a storm. This does not include grass clippings.

As always, we ask that natural vegetation and household items be separated for pickup. These items are carried to different places and disposed of differently. This will ensure that items are removed more efficiently and without delay.
