Thank you for your interest in volunteering as an N2N Leaf Brigade volunteer! Please complete the three application questions below to join the team.
Mayor Levar Stoney and city professionals have created a new initiative to help keep our city clean and improve public trash and leaf collection services. No longer will fallen leaves clutter city streets for months on end and contribute to clogging city sewer and drainage systems. Bagged leaves and bulk trash will be picked up consistently and reliably, collected every other week year-round on the same rotation with city recycling.
To this end, the city knows that many residents are physically unable to bag their leaves. Thus, the city’s Office on Volunteerism, Neighbor-To-Neighbor (N2N) – in partnership with the Department of Public Works (DPW), community-based organizations, and residents – will utilize volunteers to assist qualifying residents in bagging their leaves. This service will be offered as a pilot program this year to residents who have qualified as participants - verified by their physicians as having significant health and/or physical challenges that prevent them from bagging their own leaves.
[Note: as in previous years, residents are responsible for getting their leaves to front of their yards. The Leaf Brigade's focus in on bagging leaves, with minimal raking]
