Here's a look at leaf collections scheduled for this week by Lane County and the cities of Eugene and Springfield.
Residents of Eugene and metropolitan Lane County only should pile leaves away from parked cars, at least a foot from the curb, free of yard debris, and not blocking bicycle or vehicle lanes.
Springfield residents should bag their leaves and place them above the curb.
Crews completed the first round of collection in central Eugene. On Monday crews will move into north Eugene to begin collecting leaves.

Metropolitan Lane County
Lane County Public Works will continue its leaf pickup program on Monday, starting on the west side of River Road, north of Kingsbury Avenue/Carthage Avenue. Crews will work their way north to Beacon Drive West, on the west side of River Road. They will then begin working south on the east side of River Road, beginning at Beacon Drive East and proceeding to Hunsaker Lane.
Once crews are done in the River Road/Santa Clara area, they will move to Springfield, starting in the Game Farm Road area.
The county provides free leaf pickup on county-maintained roads with storm drainage systems in River Road-Santa Clara and Springfield areas. The program will make two complete trips through each area. Unless an immediate hazard exists, public works crews will follow their established collection schedule.
Call the County Leaf Pickup Program Hotline at 682-8565 or check the Internet at www.lanecounty.org/pw for a schedule of pickups.
The first round of collection begins Nov. 29 west of 28th Street. Residents must bag their leaves, instead of piling them in the street. Bagged leaves east of 28th Street will be picked up beginning Dec. 6. Though leaves are collected by Sanipac, leaf pickup is separate from regular garbage service. For more information, call 726-3637.
