City leaf crews continue collection over weekend to beat winter weather
The 2011 leaf collection program will move through parts of south and west Toledo Saturday and Monday as the Division of Streets, Bridges and Harbor continue efforts to sweep away the last signs of fall and colder temperatures signal the impending winter weather.
Crews will work Saturday, November 19 in the uncurbed streets of ZIP code 43623 and the curbed streets of ZIP codes 43606 and 43614.
Work will resume Monday, November 21 in the curbed streets of 43606 and the uncurbed streets of ZIP codes 43615 and 43623.
Signs announcing leaf collection in each neighborhood have been posted to notify residents that crews will soon be in the area. Please remember to leave plenty of room between your vehicle and city crews during collection operations.
This collection is for loose leaves only. Crews will not collect general yard waste including brush, sticks, or bags of leaves or grass clippings.
Leaves should be raked to the edge of the pavement on uncurbed streets and just over the curb on curbed streets. Residents are asked not place leaves on any boulevard or cul-de-sac islands.
Upon conclusion of leaf collection, any remaining leaves can be mixed with your solid waste and placed out for refuse collection.
For additional information and collection dates, please visit the Department of Public Service page on the City of Toledo website at www.toledo.oh.gov or call 419-936-2523.
