Leaf Collection Days will begin on Saturday, October 31, and will run through Sunday, November 22. The designated site for leaf collection is the Prairie Ridge Family Aquatic Center, located at 1220 NW Prairie Ridge Drive.
The leaf collection site is open for leaf disposal 24 hours a day. City crews will assist residents on four consecutive weekends beginning Saturday, October 31 through Sunday, November 22 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., each day. Leaves collected in yard waste bags are permitted, and may be disposed in the containers provided. Plastic bags and other containers shall be removed by the resident following leaf disposal.
No open burning is allowed in Ankeny, so plan to take advantage of this no cost opportunity to dispose of your leaves. Residents residing within the corporate limits of Ankeny may participate in this program.
