City Leaf Pickup began Friday, November 1, 2013 and ends January 2, 2014.
City of Chico Public Works Department officially began the annual leaf collection program on Friday, November 1, 2013 which runs through Thursday, January 2, 2014. As a reminder there is NO set schedule to leaf pickup, as it is not possible to predict how long each pass through the City will take.

Wood Burning Season is here, check burn advisories:
Chimney smoke from residential wood burning is a major source of winter time air pollution in Butte County, particularly in Chico. For these reasons, from November 1 through February 28 each year, the burning of wood in fireplaces and wood stoves within the Chico City limits is restricted on those days that the Butte County Air Quality Management District (BCAQMD) issues no-burn advisories through its annual “Check Before You Light” program. To determine when it is okay to burn, visit the BCAQMD website at www.bcaqmd.org , call their hotline at 530-332-9409 or check the weather page in the Chico Enterprise Record. You may also sign up to receive an email or twitter alert. Click here for more information about the wood burning in Chico.
