Move your vehicle on leaf removal day before 7am

If temporary “no stopping” signs are posted on your side of the street, please move your vehicle before 7am on the date marked on the sign. Moving your vehicle helps our crews to better remove leaves.

Vehicles parked in street leaf cleaning “no stopping” zones will be issued a fine of $100 ($60 discounted penalty if paid within 14 days) and will receive a courtesy tow to a nearby location.

How COV collect leaves


  1. A front-end loader gets a head start on collecting most of the leaves from your street. If your street has many parked cars and accumulates a lot of leaves, crews will return at a later date for a more thorough sweep.
  2. For streets marked for an extra sweep, temporary “no parking” signs are posted on one side of the street at a time. The signs show a date for when a mechanical street sweeper will remove the remaining leaves.
  3. A sweeper takes two consecutive days to collect leaves, one day for each side of the street.
