Leaf Pickup Program

Loose Leaf Collection

The Town of Trumbull offers an annual loose leaf collection program that begins in the Fall and runs until leaves have been collected in each neighborhood once.

Town crews will begin in the Northeast Quadrant this year, which is east of Route 25, and will pick up from the Monroe/Trumbull town line moving South through the Whitney/Daniels Farm Road area, and the Northern part of Nichols. Then move clockwise through the Southeast, Southwest, and Northwest Quadrants until finished. Please refer to the Leaf Pickup Quadrants section below for more information.

Payloaders will remove larger piles of leaves first. Crews will follow payloader to finish clean up. Both phases many not occur on the same day.

Expected Start Date: The 2023 Leaf Pickup Program is expected to begin on Monday, November 6, 2023. Weather conditions may delay collections. 

UPDATE: The 2023 Leaf Pickup Program has concluded.

Residents can track the leaf collection progress by viewing the Leaf Pickup Progress Map, which is updated daily during the progam.

Important Details:

  • Loose leaf collection will occur only once per street.
  • Leaves must be placed on the lawn, at the edge of the curb - not in the roadway. Putting leaves on the pavement is subject to a $90 fine and creates dangerous conditions for vehicles and pedestrians. 
  • Leaf piles must be in an accessible location.
  • Leaves will not be picked up if there are branches mixed in with your leaves. Branches will clog the leaf suckers.
  • Do not deposit your leaves on someone else's property or vacant lot - unless you have the owner' permission. 
  • Payloaders will remove larger piles of leaves first, then crews will return to finish clean up with leaf vacuums. Both phases many not occur on the same day.

In the event of an early snowfall, if crews are not able to complete leaf collection, leaves in the gutter may be plowed back partially onto your lawn and may remain snow covered. In the spring, the grass may show temporary signs of stress because it has been covered over, but will remedy itself as the weather warms.

Bagged Leaf Collection

Residents may request bagged leaf pickup at any time, and as many times as needed, during the Town's Loose Leaf Pickup Program. After the bagged leaves have been placed at the curb, residents can request a Bagged Leaf Pickup online or call 203-452-5070 to be placed on the Bagged Leaf Pickup List (please leave an address if a voicemail is left). All leaves must be in paper bags. Plastic bags will not be picked up.

The Town is sectioned into four quadrants: Northwest, Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, with Route 25 running down the middle. Following will be the 2023/24 progression:
