Autumn is here, marking the start of the 400 tonnes of leaves which are expected to fall from Hamilton’s array of trees.

Hamilton City Council has arranged sweeper trucks and teams to collect the leaves so they don’t block drains and cause flooding, and to make sure paths aren’t slippery for those walking and biking.

The Council focuses on known leaf fall hotspot areas, which are checked at least twice a week and swept as needed. Teams also blow leaves on to the road edge for collection at a later time, and clear catchpit grates ahead of or after rain.

Residents in high leaf fall areas are asked to keep cars off the road for the leaf sweepers, and if safe and comfortable to do so, to clear leaves from the top of catchpits and leave them on the grass for collection. Residents are asked to dispose of leaves from their own property.

If a catchpit is blocked or leaves are an issue people can contact the Council’s Customer Service team on ph 838 6699, the Antenno app, or email for non-urgent requests.

The leaves are taken to the Hamilton Organic Centre for composting.
