2020 Leaf Pickup Schedule The Portsmouth Public Service Department will be starting its annual leaf pickup on October 26, 2020. The entire City will be covered twice in six weeks according to the following schedule. Citizens are asked to rake their leaves in the street next to the curb at least one day ahead of the schedule. Please rake leaves separately from brush or other objects and if you have bagged leaves place them where you place your garbage, but separate from the garbage. Residents are asked to move their cars on the day of their scheduled leaf pickup. Especially, if your street is narrow (EXAMPLE: 1100 Block & 1200 Block 22nd Street). Leaves that are under cars WILL NOT be picked up until the next scheduled day. If you are using a landscaping company to collect your leaves or hire someone to rake them, then they are responsible for removing the leaves from your property. Thank you for your cooperation in this endeavor. The dates are tentative, because we may be delayed by the weather, quantity of leaves, or equipment failure.
