[ARCHIVED] 2019 Leaf Collection

As always, City crews will make one full pass through the City.  A second sweep through the City will be attempted if weather conditions remain favorable.  Residents may place bagged leaves out with their regular trash and they will be picked up by Kimble Refuse (does not apply for Senior bag only service).

Resident are reminded again not to put piles of leaves in the streets as it does cause a hazard and can be cited by the police (codified ordinances 937.05 and 311.01(d)).

Leaves must be placed in the curb lawn to be picked up.  Please remember leaves cannot be picked up where cars are in front of the piles.  Residents are also reminded not to put anything in with the leaves such as garbage, shrubs, tree limbs or yard waste or they will not be picked up.

Residents who live West of Sawburg - Main St. to State St. and Rockhill to Sawburg - Main St. to Glamorgan are encouraged to get their leaves to the curb this weekend.

Attempts will be made to keep the public notified through the local media, the City website and social media as to where the crews are working, Inquiries should be directed to the Street Department at (330) 823-3133 Monday thru Friday from 7 am to 3 pm.

Again , we understand that residents have come to expect that we will make two passes through the City and all efforts will be made to accomplish this.  However, the same equipment needed for leaf collection has to be reconfigured and used for snow and ice control.  Additionally, the leaf vacuums will not work in freezing temperatures.  Residents should make every effort to place their leaves in time for the first collection pass.
