Beginning Monday, October 17, 2016 Hilliard will begin the citywide leaf collection program. Collections occur weekdays between 7:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Residents should stop raking on December 16, 2016 as final leaf collections are scheduled for the week of December 19, 2016.
Residents do not need to call and schedule curbside leaf collection. City crews will collect leaves placed at the curbside during scheduled collections. Scheduled collections are based on a four color-coded quadrant system. The quadrant map is located to the right under "Additional Resources."
Residents can still bag leaves in biodegradable bags for weekly curbside yard waste pickup on weeks when the City crews are not doing leaf collection in their neighborhood/quadrant.
Please follow these guidelines to help City crews:
- Rake leaves to the curb to ensure pick-up on the scheduled week.Leaves must be placed in the green space between the back of curb and sidewalk.
- DO NOT place leaves in the street or pile them around fire hydrants, mailboxes, parked cars, signs, or street lights.
- Do NOT mix brush or trash into leaf piles.
- Keep children away from leaf piles that are ready for collection.
