When is curbside leaf pick up in Mankato, MN?

Fall has only officially been here for a few weeks. One of the things that are on many of our to-do lists is raking up leaves. If you’ve been wondering, ‘When is curb-side leaf pickup in Mankato, MN,’ Kia of Mankato has done some homework for you. The City of Mankato has set the annual leaf disposal effort to run from Oct. 28 through Nov. 22. However, this timeline could change based on any radical changes in the weather. Leaf vacuuming services could be suspended early if the leaves get picked up or if snow arrives needlessly sooner than normal. Let’s take a look at what our team of product experts has found.

If you plan on using the city’s leaf-collection services, there are a few things that you should know. The day that the vacuum comes by is based on when your usual garbage collection day is. If your garbage gets picked up on Mondays, leaf collection will occur on Tuesday. Residents with Friday trash pickup will see the leaves leave their yard on the following Monday.

More important information

Here are a few tips that will make the city’s annual leaf collection efforts as easy as possible.

• Place the leaves next to the curb but take care that the pile doesn’t spill into the gutter. The machine will not travel down alleyways.

• Make sure that no other yard waste gets into the curb-side pile. Sticks and other brush can damage the leaf collecting machine.

• If you park on the street, make sure there are no cars or other vehicles blocking the piles of leaves. The leaf-collection crew might not pick up the leaves if there are obstructions.

• People with corner lots are asked to make sure their leaf piles are in a straight light. The machine can’t make the turn to pick up leaves that wrap around a corner.
