When should I rake my leaves to the curb? Please rake leaves to the curb before 8:00 a.m. on the day of your scheduled pickup. You do not want to miss the truck! Once the leaf truck has made a pass on your street, it will not return and we will not accept special requests.

What happens if I miss the date? If you miss the date for your section, you will have to bag your leaves for regular yard debris pickup which is Fridays for townhomes and Wednesdays/Fridays for single family homes.
Leaf Collection Guidelines
Place leaves curbside and away from storm drains, mailboxes, fire hydrants and off of sidewalks and streets by 8 a.m. on the first day of collection in your area.
In the single family and garage town home sections, please rake your piles to the curb in front of your home.
In the townhome sections that have parking in front of homes, please rake your piles to a central location at either ends of your row for easiest removal. Do not allow the piles to become so large that they impede traffic.
Park away from leaf piles. No vehicles should be parked within 20 feet on either side of the pile.
Leaf piles located between closely parked vehicles will not be picked up because the vacuum cannot access it.
Do not park cars on piles of leaves as this is a fire hazard.
DO NOT RAKE GRASS CLIPPINGS, STICKS, ROCKS, BRANCHES, PINECONES, BOTTLES OR TRASH with your leaves. Foreign debris can injure crews, damage equipment and prevent your leaves from being recycled into compost. A glass bottle left in a leaf pile can shatter after passing through the impeller and spray glass everywhere which may cause serious injuries.
Inclement weather may delay pickups or extend the collection period. For schedule changes, check our website at islandcreek.org.
This year, the Board has begun a re-compete of our Property Management Contract (PMC). Our current PMC is with Sequoia. The board created a management company support committee to help in this process. The board's goal is to work with the committee to help define the requirements of the proposal. We additionally have hired Lincoln Cummings, who specializes in management contracts, to lead this committee and guide the board in this process. Bids have been received and are being evaluated. Results will be announced at the end of that process.
Single Family Yard Debris Collection Resumed on March 1st The separate Wednesday yard debris collection for single family homes resumed on March 1st.
