The Clifton Knolls 2021 Leaf Pick-Up Schedule will begin on Monday, October 25, 2021 and will continue through Friday, December 3, 2021, depending upon the weather. There will be no pick-up on Tuesday, November 2 (Election Day), Thursday, November 11 (Veterans Day), Thursday, November 25 (Thanksgiving Day), and Friday, November 26. There will be no extensions expected beyond December 3, 2021.
If conditions allow, however, and if sufficient leaves have been raked to the curb, the Town Highway Dept. may start picking up leaves a few days earlier than the scheduled start date of October 25. Please be aware that the last week of the schedule is completely dependent upon the weather, since an early snowstorm or frozen conditions could shut down pickup operations for the season earlier than planned. Be advised that procrastination or waiting for the last week to start leaf gathering could result in missing out on leaf pickup if winter conditions arrive earlier than normally anticipated. Please note that the Mill Creek development is not included in the leaf collection district.

Residents are reminded that piles of leaves on the pavement surfaces pose a safety hazard for pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles. Leaves in the road can also clog catch basins and cause street flooding. Please DO NOT move leaves into the street, but pile them only on the edge of your property. Also, leaves should not be moved into the center islands. Branches and sticks must be removed or broken-up or reduced in size to 6-inches or less in length and less than 1/2-inch in diameter to prevent clogging of the leaf vacuum machines. Suggestions about pick-ups or situations requiring attention should be reported to the Town Highway Superintendent at 518-371-7310. Calls made within 24 hours of a problem can be addressed quickly, so take an active role. Also, please check the Clifton Park Website at www.cliftonpark.org for additional information or changes.
