The Tullahoma Public Works Department will end the leaf pickup for the season on March 1, 2024. Citizens are free to rake their leaves as close to the curb as possible; however, leaves cannot be placed in ditches or in the streets due to safety hazards. If citizens are going to rake leaves to the curb, the city requests that the piles not exceed 2 feet in depth; not be placed more than 5 feet away from the curb or shoulder; not block storm drain inlets; and not contain tree limbs, stumps, or any other debris, as it may damage equipment or injure employees.
