Leaf Collection - Fall 2019

Fall 2019 Schedule


Each year, the City of Ashland works with residents to collect fallen leaves to create clean, safe neighborhood streets in preparation for the winter season. See the guidelines and schedule for the 2019 below!

Please note the changes for Veteran's Day and the Thanksgiving Day weekend. Remember, leaves need to be at the curb or berm by 7:00am the day following your scheduled trash pick-up!





Beginning November 4th, the city crews will collect leaves along residential streets and will continue until all of the leaves have fallen or inclement weather sets in.


Your designated leaf collection day will be the day following your normal trash pickup day.




  • Rake leaves to the curb or berm prior to 7:00 a.m. on your scheduled day

  • Leaves should be brought to the curb or berm, not in the street or ditches; leaves placed in the street or ditches cause storm sewers to clog and create traffic hazards

  • Place leaves at least 3 feet away from obstructions, such as trees, signs, and fire hydrants

  • Park vehicles away from your leaf piles

  • Ensure no rocks, branches, yard waste, or other debris are included in leaf piles


Other Yard Disposal Options

For additional yard waste items - such as grass, flowers, mulch, twigs, or brush trimmings - there are two disposal options:

  • Place yard waste in a paper yard waste bag with a yard waste sticker and call the City Services Department at 419-289-9791 to schedule a pickup

  • Drop off yard waste bags at the Sanitation Department, 1674 Cleveland Ave, any weekday between 8:00am and 3:00pm
