Leaf Collection

 Fall 2018 Schedule


Each year, the City starts city wide leaf collection at the end of October or first of November. Leaf pickup is for leaves only. Mulched leaves and grass fall into the yard waste category and should be put in brown yard waste bags for pick up. Pampas grass, potted plants, removed in ground plants, mulched grass, brush, etc. are all yard waste products and should be handled through the yard waste program or chipping program. Leaves piled on brush cannot be picked up.

Leaves should be put to the curb and not in the street for collection. Please make sure that leaves are not blocked by vehicles parked in front of the leaf piles. Also be aware of putting leaves around signposts, fire hydrants, utility poles and mailboxes as the machine needs to be able to reach them.

Three crews work throughout the City.  Please make sure that leaves are out to the curb by 7:30am for pickup. Additional pick-up dates are planned to pick up additional leaves.

Please keep leaves out of the street! 

Leaves should be placed on the tree lawn or at the edge of the resident's lawn.

Note: Please remember that this is for leaf pickup only. Yard waste and mulched grass should be placed in the brown yard waste bags. Sticks mixed in with the grass can ruin the city’s equipment!


Leaf Pickup Begins Tuesday, Nov. 13


Here are some helpful hints:

  • Only leaves should be put out for leaf pick up

  • Stay on good terms with your neighbors! Make sure that leaves are placed in front of your own property. If your property does not have a curb or direct access for the leaf crews, please contact the Sanitation Dept to find out when the crews will be in your area or use the yard waste bags and arrange for pick-up. 419-289-9791

  • Make sure that leaves are easily accessible for the work crews - not blocked by vehicles or next to signs, utility poles, fire hydrants or other obstructions. 

  • Protect our crews and our equipment - make sure no sticks are mixed in with the leaves!

  • If you see the work crews, tell them "Thank you"! They work hard to keep our city looking good!
