Leaves fall. You rake. We pick ‘em up.
This year's program runs from November 9 to December 31.
It’s leaf season in the Valley and that means one thing: start raking! If you live in the Medford city limits, Rogue Disposal and Recycling will pick up your bagged leaves at no charge to you. Use heavy-duty 33-gallon bags — the kind you find at any grocery, warehouse or home improvement store — to bag your leaves and take them to the curb. Then we’ll take care of the rest. Got leaves? Rake up, it’s leaf season!
