EUGENE, Ore. -- Lane County and the cities of Eugene and Springfield are preparing for their annual leaf collection efforts.

Removing leaves from catch basins, grates and gutters allows storm water to run off and prevents flooding.

In all three jurisdictions, property owners are responsible for leaves that are placed improperly in the street or cause safety or localized flooding hazards.

Eugene and Lane County allow residents to pile leaves in the street, while Springfield only allows bagged leaves to be set out for collection.

Eugene’s leaf collection and delivery program begins Nov. 9 and will start with an initial focus on the central Eugene area and then break into groups to focus on designated sections of the city.

In Springfield the city will start collecting in two rounds in two areas, the west and east sides of town with 28th Street and 31st Street as the dividing lines.

Bags need to be placed curbside, not in the street, by 7 a.m. on Monday of the scheduled week for collection in that area.

Lane County Public Works will begin its annual leaf pickup program on Monday, Nov. 9. The county collects leaves in two rounds in two general areas: Santa Clara north of Beltline Highway and several Springfield locations.
