Ah, autumn in Wisconsin. The crisp breeze, bright sunshine, brilliant colors and … leaves.

Whether you live in the city or one of the villages, you’ve got leaves; lots and lots of leaves.

2014 City of Racine leaf collection schedule.

The City of Racine and the Village of Sturtevant pick up yard waste while the Villages of Mount Pleasant and Caledonia make sites available for drop-off.

Racine: City residents can have leaves picked up until Nov. 30. Dates depend on garbage collection days.

Sturtevant: Place yard waste in clear plastic bags and have them on the curb each Monday before 6 a.m. Pick-up is the second and fourth Mondays in October and November.

Caledonia: Yard waste cannot be mixed with garbage; grass clippings, branches, etc. can be dropped off behind the Safety Building, 6900 Nicholson Road. The yard waste collection site is open to village residents only. Call Village Hall (262) 835-4451 for hours of operation.

Mount Pleasant: Village residents can drop off yard waste at the village compost site just north of Highway 20 and Wood Road between April 12 and Nov. 29. The site is open from 12 to 6 p.m. Wednesdays and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays.
