City Leaf Collection to Begin on Oct. 7

Posted October 3, 2019 in Uncategorized by Anna Subler

The City of Hilliard’s curbside leaf collection service will begin on Monday, Oct. 7, and continue through the end of the year. Collections occur weekdays between 7:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Residents should rake leaves to the curb area (between the sidewalk and street).

There is no need to call and schedule curbside leaf collection, as a new weekly collection schedule has been implemented for the entire City. Crews will collect leaves placed at the curb during scheduled times by neighborhood zones. The quadrant map can be found here.

When raking leaves for collection, please remember to:

  • Rake leaves to the curb in the green space between the back of the curb and sidewalk.
  • Do not place leaves in the street or pile them around fire hydrants, mailboxes, parked cars, signs, basketball hoops, drains or streetlights.
  • Avoid parking cars on cul-de-sacs so trucks can get to the leaves.
  • Do not mix brush or trash into leaf piles.
  • Keep children away from leaf piles that are ready for collection

Residents may also bag leaves in biodegradable bags for weekly curbside yard waste pickup.
