Press Release from the City of Toledo:
City crews invite residents to “Come Roll With Us”
Program offers inside look at operations
As Toledo residents get to work with rakes and leaf blowers preparing for the city’s annual leaf collection program, the department of Public Service is offering citizens an inside look at their operations through the new “Come Roll With Us” program.
Director Ed Moore and Streets, Bridges and Harbor Manager Tim Plath will kick-off the program at a 9 a.m. press conference on Thursday, November 10 at the Streets, Bridges and Harbor building at 1189 W. Central Ave.
Come Roll With Us is an opportunity for residents to learn about the city’s leaf collection operations and observe crews in the field. The city began its 2011 leaf collection effort on Monday, November 7 in the 43613 and 43623 zip codes.
“We’re hoping residents will take the opportunity to ride with some of our crews and see first hand what they do and why we’ve established some of the policies we have,” said Ed Moore, director of Public Service for the city.
Residents can “roll” with crews on Tuesdays from 1-3 p.m. The program is open to the public, but participants must schedule a time for their ride along as space is limited. For more information or to schedule, please contact the division of Streets, Bridges and Harbor at 419-936-2508.
