- Both sides of N. Main & Darrow (north) = Northwest Quadrant
- Both sides of E. Streetsboro = Southeast Quadrant
- Both sides of W. Streetsboro, S. Main, & Darrow (south) = Southwest Quadrant
When should I put out my leaves?
To participate in this program, residents are required to rake their leaves to the edge of the street no sooner than the weekend prior to the scheduled pickup week and no later than 7:00 am on the Monday of the scheduled pickup week. Leaves placed after the truck has gone by will wait until the next leaf collection week in your neighborhood.
Where do I place my leaves?
Place leaves in the tree lawn area - parallel to the street on the street edge or behind the curb. Please avoid placing leaves in the street, ditches, and gutters, or near obstacles that will be in the way of the trucks such as parked vehicles, trees, mailboxes, fire hydrants, and streetlights.
A leaf truck was in my neighborhood before our scheduled week, will it be back?
Leaf Collection trucks may collect leaves before the scheduled dates, but will restart the quadrant during scheduled weeks as well.
- Does the City pick up on private streets and condominiums?
No. Due to the size of the leaf collection equipment and the potential to damage private property, the City’s leaf collection program will pick up leaves ONLY along the City’s publicly maintained streets. Therefore, residents living on private streets or within private condominium developments will need to place their leaves along the tree lawn area of the public street closest to their private street entrance.
- Can I continue to park my car on the street during leaf collection?
No. Please refrain from parking on the street during your leaf collection weeks.
- Do you pick up in front of businesses or churches?
- Can I include my brush to be collected with my leaves?
No. Debris such as garden materials, brush, tree branches and twigs, grass clippings, cans, paper, bottles, construction materials, etc. cause damage to equipment and cause injury to the leaf collection personnel.
- I have a basketball hoop along the side of the road. Do I need to move it?
Yes. Remove temporary/portable basketball hoops off of the street and away from the curb or edge of the pavement. These items protrude into the path of the leaf vacuum machines and will cause damage to the machine and the basketball hoop system.
- Are there any other ways to recycle my leaves?
Yes! Leaf mulching is a way to use your lawn mower to feed your lawn. "Leave Autumn Leaves on your Yard for Healthy Yard and Clean Water" by Summit Soil and Water Conservation District (SSWCD) has more information.
- A yellow/white door hanger was left on my door and my leaves are still in my yard. What can I do?
Assess your leaf piles. Are the leaves in a row along the edge of the street free of debris and obstructions? Please amend the collection area and the truck will be back around to collect the leaves on your next scheduled collection week.
- My lawn was damaged. Will the City fix it?
No. The City does not repair damage caused by leaves or incidental damage to the berm area.
You may report larger damage claims on the City's website by locating "Report it!" on the homepage.
