Leaf Pickup Program

Loose Leaf Collection

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

Town crews will begin in the Southwest Quadrant this year, which is west of Rte. 25, will pick up from Old Town Road moving North, then move clockwise thru the Northwest, Northeast and Southeast Quadrants until finished. Please refer to the Leaf Pickup Quadrants section below for more information.

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.

Expected Start Date: The Leaf Pickup Program Start Date is expected to begin Monday, November 8, 2021. Weather conditions may delay collections.

Important Details:

  • Loose leaf collection will occur only once per street.
  • It is imperative all leaves are moved to the curb no later than November 8, 2021.
  • 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’s 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 throughout the leaf pickup program by calling 203-452-5070. All leaves must be in paper bags. Plastic bags will not be picked up.
