City begins leaf pickup Monday

The city of Dunkirk Department of Public Works will begin leaf pickup with a city-wide sweep on Monday, starting in District A.

Once the first sweep of District A is complete, crews will then move to District B. District C and District D will follow in order.

Only leaves in open/untied bags and barrels will be picked up in this first sweep. Leaves left loose at the curb will be picked up in the next sweep at a later date to be announced. If leaves are left loose at the curb, residents are asked to keep leaves clear of receivers and utility poles and out of the street. DPW officials request no branches be mixed with leaves at this time. A separate pick up for branches may be scheduled at a later date.

City of Dunkirk residents may also drop brush off at the Public Works facility on Lucas Avenue. Brush Facility hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays. When dumping, note the separate pile for leaves, pine and other woods. Do not mix them. For more information, refer to the 2020 Curbside Collection Schedule.
