Leaf Pickup Schedule for Wednesday, December 8

Tuesday, Nov 23, 2021 at 10:50 am

All three trucks are collecting leaves along Broad Street on Wednesday, December 8.

The third and final round of leaf collection will start in all three sections of Bexley tomorrow, December 9. This work is scheduled to wrap up at the end of December, weather permitting. Once the third round of collection is complete, City crews will start spot-check pickups to collect the remaining leaves.

Below are a few simple guidelines to follow to ensure leaves are picked up in a timely and efficient manner:

  • Rake leaves to the back of the curb but not in the street. If possible, please avoid placing leaf piles near mailboxes, trees, lights or signs.
  • Avoid parking in front of large leaf piles whenever possible. If piles are blocked, our crews will be unable to remove them.
  • Leaves will be collected on a weekly basis as the city will deploy one crew in north, central and south Bexley. This program concludes in December after three full cycles throughout Bexley, weather permitting. 
  • Please keep leaves out of storm water sewers and stream banks. Leaves cause bacteria that depletes oxygen and can kill fish and other stream organisms.
  • Leaves can also be collected during scheduled yard waste collection dates if they are placed in paper yard waste bags or in a container marked as “yard waste”.
