Move your cars - leaf pickup starts Sunday in Spokane

Leaf pickup in the city of Spokane will begin Sunday.

The city reminds residents to move cars off the street on the day crews are scheduled to be in their neighborhood. Call the Leaf Hotline, (509) 456-2666, for that schedule, or visit

Leaf pickup is only for leaves that fall into the street, the city cautions in a news release.

“Raked yard leaves should be disposed of” through other means, such as green yard-waste carts, composting, or taking them to the waste-to-energy plant or a transfer station.
