City of Akron Press Release
Published: 11-22-2016

Akron, Ohio, November 22, 2016The City of Akron is extending its Leaf Removal Program into late December, weather permitting.  Due to the warmer weather this fall season, the leaves stayed on the trees longer than usual and initial leaf removal in some wards was limited.  Therefore, after the City has completed one full round of leaf removal citywide, the Street Cleaning Division will revisit Wards 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9 to provide additional service to residents.

The following are the expected dates that the Street Cleaning Division will return to these wards:

                                Ward 5                  December 12 - 13

Ward 3                  December 14 - 15

Ward 9                  December 16 & 19

Ward 7                  December 20 - 21

Ward 6                  December 22 - 23

These extended pick up dates are subject to change based on the weather and the City’s completion of the first round of pick-up citywide.  Residents should watch for signs in the tree lawns providing advanced notice of pickup dates and are reminded to refrain from raking or blowing leaves into the street until the day before scheduled leaf removal.

Residents in Wards 1, 2, 4, 8 and 10 can receive additional vacuum pick-up service after December 23, if needed, by calling the City’s 3-1-1 Call Center at 311 or 330/375-2311 and having a request for leaf removal entered for their address.

Any changes to the dates listed above will be updated on the Leaf Removal page of the City’s website at http://www.akronohio.gov/cms/LeafRemovalProgram/index.html.
