Every Fall the Orange Village Service Department collects leaves and turns them into a rich compost that can be added to gardens and soil. This compost is then delivered to residents by request. This service is to aid residents in the disposal and recycling of fallen leaves. Please review the procedures for placing leaves for pickup. Apply on-line to request leaf humus. Requests are honored in the order they are received while supplies last.

How To Place Leaves for Pickup
Leaves should be placed close to the edge of the road. They should not extend onto the road.
Leaves should not be placed in ditches or covering storm sewer drains. Doing this will obstruct the storm drains which will increase the risk of flooding.
Leaves should be in a long row no farther off the road than 8 feet.
Do not mix branches or foreign objects with the leaves. This can cause damage to the machine that picks up the leaves. Refer to branch pickup for branches.
