Update Wednesday, Nov. 9: Pickup continues in Area 3 with the plan of starting Area 4 tomorrow, Nov. 10.
Update Tuesday, Nov. 8: Pickup will continue in Area 2 and Area 3.
Update Monday, Nov. 7: Trucks will be in Area 2 today and Tuesday, Nov. 8.
Update Wednesday, Nov. 2: Because of the large amount of leaves in Area 1, our crews will remain in that area until Friday before moving on to Area 2 next week. Don’t worry! We will not leaf you behind! Leaf collection service will continue through the end of the year. We’ll continue to post updates as needed. As a reminder, please:
• Rake your leaves to the curb or tree lawn, but not into the street where they will block traffic.
• Place your leaves at the
curb at least two days before crews are scheduled to arrive. Depending on Mother Nature, equipment problems and volume of leaves, crews may run up to two days early or two days late.
• Do not rake anything except leaves to the curb for collection. Branches, sticks and other waste clog the machinery and can potentially damage the leaf vacuum.
• Do not bag your leaves for collection. Bagged leaves will be by-passed. Leaves must be at the curb for ease of pick up by leaf vacuums. Bagged leaves will be left for Rumpke to pick up as part of their yard waste collection.
• Do not park vehicles within 20 feet of leaf piles. Leaves must be accessible to the trucks and the leaf vacuum. If leaves are not accessible, they will be bypassed – we do not want to risk damaging the leaf vacuum or your vehicles.
