Leaf Vacuum

Mapleton's leaf vacuum allows residents to rake their leaves into the gutter.

Beginning the week of October 9th and the weeks that follow thru November 17th, leaf vacuuming will be done on Monday and Tuesday mornings from approximately 8:00 a.m. until noon.

  • Please have leaves raked out into the gutter for vacuuming.
  • Vehicles must be off the street in order for the vacuum to pick up the leaves.  If a car is parked on the street during the pickup time, that area will not have leaves vacuumed.
  • This is for leaves and grass clippings ONLY
  • No sticks should be mixed in with the leaves.  This could harm the machine.
