SEE PHOTOGRAPHS OF LEAF COLLECTIONS IN VARIOUS NEIGHBORHOODS
During the 2015-16 leaf collection season, DPW supervisors are photographing collection crews in action and the results of their work. Camera symbols on the map identify where the pictures were submitted.
To see the images, select either Pass 1 (green) or Pass 2 (orange), which appear just below the map. Enter your address in the block to the right of the map and click on "search". Use either the "zoom" tool above the map, or the sliding bar that is on the left side of the map, to increase or decrease the size of the map. Click on a camera symbol and a scrolling pop-up window will appear with pictures, date and time taken, and brief comments about the pictures. To close a photograph, click on the x in the upper right corner.
DPW makes every effort to match the pictures to the date, time and location where they were taken. In a few instances pictures have been taken, then submitted from a different location and at a later date and time, causing the symbol to appear on the map in a different location and time from where and when the picture actually was taken. In most cases, however, the location represented by the camera symbol, and the date and time associated with the picture accurately represent the time and place of the picture(s).
These pictures are being posted 24 -48 hours after they are taken to allow time for DPW staff to review the pictures for display to the public. Not every street will have photographs of collection activities.
Please note: The scheduled start date and the scheduled finish date are based on the schedule for the entire leaf collection area. Within each leaf collection area are streets where there will be no leaf collection by city crews (e.g. highways, federally maintained roads in national parks, private drives, and highly urbanized areas where a lack of trees and high level of traffic make leaf collection unnecessary and/or too disruptive). Those streets will be indicated in purple. For addresses along purple colored streets, please disregard the scheduled start and scheduled finish dates.
