EUGENE, Ore. -- It's time to start raking your yard and gathering leaves. Starting this weekend, the City of Eugene will be coming by to pick them up.

Not cleaning up the leaves in your yard and on the sidewalk in front of your home does have consequences. It could be a liability if someone slips and falls.

This map below shows which areas of the city will be cleaned up when. The areas in orange are this upcoming weekend, so make sure to get those leaves collected by then.

The City of Eugene plans to clean up every city street at least twice before leaf season ends.

The leaf pickup program is funded by the storm water user fees that homeowners within city limits pay.

"Look at all these leaves that we have," Brian Richardson said, Communications Director for Eugene Public Works. "I mean, we work as best as we can to pick up as many leaves and really it's about keeping the community safe is what we want to do as well and making sure we have clean water returning back to the Willamette River."

All of the storm drains flow back into the Willamette River, which is why it's so important for each individual homeowner to make sure they are gathering leaves so they are ready for city pickup.

You can also stick leaves in your yard debris bins if you don't want to wait for the city to pick them up.
