NOTE: This collection is not related to the Township’s Residential Branch Chipping Program, which concludes for the year Monday October 30th.
Olmsted Township has completed it’s fourth year of providing a Leaf Collection Program to our residents.
Please note the following requirements for your leaves to be collected:
➢ LEAVES ONLY. Leaves must be in piles in order to be collected. NO grass, NO branches, NO sticks/twigs of any size. Any mixed piles will NOT be picked up.
➢ All leaves must be on the tree lawn or behind the white edge line, but not in the street.
➢ Residents with ditches should rake leaves into one pile, in one section of the ditch. Do not pile leaves the full length of the ditch.
➢ Residents need to get leaves piled as soon as they start to fall from trees. There are no scheduled dates for leaf pick up, but this year’s program began on October 16th, so get your leaves out as soon as possible to be collected. Pick up will begin on the east side of the Township and work through to the west side. This east to west collection will be used for all leaf collection this year.
➢ Leaves can still be placed in brown kraft bags as yard waste and placed alongside weekly trash, but only through 11/24/17 – the last day of yard waste collection by Republic Waste.
➢ The vacuum unit will not enter private property for any reason. Therefore, all leaf piles must be as close to the street as possible, but not in the street.
