Leaf Collection information:

Streets, Bridges & Harbor is a division of our Public Services Department.  They collect an annual average of 300,000 cubic yards of loose leaves in the City of Toledo to prevent them from clogging the sewer system and creating unsafe driving situations.   Typical leaf collection programs run from November 1st until the first major snowfall in December.  Every zipcode in the City of Toledo receives leaf pick up at least once during the fall season.

Leaves are falling earlier this year than last year.  STREET SWEEPING is already underway in a few locations.  The 2014 Leaf Collection Program will be in full operation starting October 27, 2014 in zipcodes 43613 and 43623.

 Do not dump leaves in streams or creeks.  Citizens are encouraged to mulch leaves and use them in their yards and gardens. Mulched leaves add significant nutrients back into the yard and make excellent compost for use in the garden.

Please have your leaves, grass and plant material raked to the lawn area between the edge of road on uncurbed streets or just over the curb on residential streets not more than two days before the scheduled date of leaf pick-up. Placing leaves in the street too early creates a slip hazard during wet weather.   If you are bagging, you can put significantly more leaves in the bag if the leaves are mulched first. Please use brown paper bags only. Material in plastic bags will not be picked up.  Grass and plant material may be mixed with leaves.  However, woody material, such as branches, twigs, shrubs and garbage mixed in with leaves will cause us to LEAVE that pile as collecting it will damage the equipment and increase costs associated with the program.
