CIRCLEVILLE – Fall is in the air and as those leaves turn colors you know that raking is just around the corner.
Fall leaf collection in the City of Circleville begins Monday, November 4th. Leaves will be collected through Friday, December 27th. Efforts by City of Circleville residents to deliver bagged leaves to the City Garage, 740 South Washington Street, will be greatly appreciated as united efforts combine for a cleaner neighborhood, in a timelier manner, for all. Deliveries will be accepted from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, with the exception of city observed holidays, November 28nd and 29rd and December 24th and 25th. For residents not able to deliver to our City Garage, bagged leaves may also be placed on the curb for pick up.
The City offers the following tips for your fall leaf collection in order to prevent stormwater pollution:
□ Place leaves ONLY between the grassy area and curb, not in the street
□ Place leaves only for collection, no brush or other debris, as they will not be collected
□ Park cars away from leaf piles
□ Keep Leaves away from street storm drains. Leaves flow into the storm sewer and cause blockages and street flooding. Too much decomposing organic waste adds excess nutrients into our streams and lakes, some of which can lead to algae blooms which can be harmful to humans and pets.
We will pick up leaves throughout the remainder of the year. If you have any questions regarding leaf collection, please contact the Service Department at 477-8224.
