LEAF REMOVAL PROGRAM

 

 

City of Akron 2017
LEAF REMOVAL

 

LEAF REMOVAL SCHEDULE:

The following leaf removal schedule is the starting dates for each ward. Please note that each ward takes more than one day to complete.

Please make sure your leaves are not in the street until the day before the scheduled start of your ward. Please look for signs posted in your ward indicating the start date for your ward. Crews will work 6 to 7 days a week until we have made one round of leaf pickup through the City.

You can BAG your leaves at anytime and call 3-1-1 to schedule one of your 3 annual free Special Bulk Volume Pick Ups through the Sanitation division.  Please note, that Special Bulk Volume pick ups can not be used for loose leaves raked to the curb.       

SPECIAL NOTE: You can choose to rake your leaves to the curb or bag them using environmentally-friendly, biodegradable paper leaf bags.  If you chose to use biodegradable bags, they must be set out on your scheduled leaf pick up day.  These bags are available at many local stores. With either option, the same pickup schedule will be followed.

TO OUR STREET CLEANING CUSTOMERS
Our Service is more efficient and economical to the resident if these guidelines are followed.

  • Signs will be posted at intersections to remind residents when leaves will be removed.

  • DO NOT allow children to play in leaves on or near the street.
  • DO NOT place branches or any other debris in the street. (Leaves only)
  • DO NOT rake leaves into the street after leaves have been removed from your street or you will be subject to a fine.
  • DO NOT park vehicles on the street the day before your scheduled pick-up, until your leaves have been removed.
  • DO NOT park vehicles over leaves. The heat from the underside of the vehicle may cause a fire.
  • DO rake leaves into the street, no more than two feet from the curb or street edge, the day before your scheduled pick up day.

 

WEATHER PERMITTING:

We are experiencing the leaves staying on the trees longer than normal before falling.

The Street Cleaning Division will revisit Ward’s 5, 3, 6, 2, 1 and 8 in that order after we have completed one full round of leaf removal, City-wide.

Signs will be posted in and around your Neighborhood 48 hours in advance of revisiting the Wards listed above.

The following dates are the anticipated dates we will return to each of those wards.  We will update this information the closer we get to completing one full round city-wide.

 

Ward 5                  December 11, 12

Ward 3                  December 13, 14

Ward 6                  December 15, 16, 18

Ward 2                  December 19, 20,21

Ward 1                  December 22, 23

Ward 8                  December 26, 27

Residents in the remaining wards can still receive additional service as needed after December 23 by calling our 311 call center and having a leaf removal request entered for your address.
