Curbside leaf collection will begin in Bowling Green on Monday.
Residents who receive city-provided refuse/recycling service are eligible for the leaf pick-up.
The collection crew will start in the Third Ward. When pickup in that ward is completed, the crew will then move through Ward 4, Ward 1 and Ward 2. Several passes of the city will be made.
Pickup is by ward not rubbish collection districts.
Leaves should be placed loose (not in bags) at the curb. Do not place branches in with leaves as it will not be collected.
Do not rake leaves into the street. This is very important for public safety. Placing leaves in the street is a violation of the city’s Storm Water Management Policy.
Bowling Green residents may also take leaves to the drop-off site located behind the Public Works garage on Tarragon Drive (off East Poe Road). Note that brush and branches are not accepted at the drop-off site.
Residents may also want to consider using a recycling mower to return shredded leaves to their yards. Grass clippings and finely chopped leaves add vital nutrients and organic matter to the lawn, thus improving lawn health.
The city provides tracking of the leaf crews on its web site at www.bgohio.org.
An announcement will be made prior to the final pass through the city.
PERRYSBURG — The city will begin leaf pick-up Monday and has outlined rules for the collection. Crews will begin on the west side of the city, working east, with a final round of collection on Dec. 2. Leaves put out once crews have been by will not be picked up, and a supervisor will follow workers to ensure all leaves placed outside at the proper time are collected.
Residents are asked to rake leaves near the curb or street edge, but not in the roadway. Do not use bags for this city collection, and do not pile leaves near mailboxes or vehicles.
There is no pick-up in alleys, and storm drains must be kept clear of debris. Those who live along a ditch or creek are reminded not to rake leaves into the waterway. Also, this pick-up is for leaves only, not sticks or other yard waste. Residents should also instruct their landscaping companies to not blow leaves into the street while mowing.
Leaf and brush disposal is also available at the city compost site from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays for residents registered with the Department of Public Service. The site is also available from 8 a.m. until noon on the second and fourth Saturday of the month. During the week, visit the Department of Public Service, 11980 Roachton Road, to have leaves inspected and obtain a key to the compost site.
City yard waste bags may also be used to dispose of leaves. They are picked up on the same day as refuse is collected through Nov. 30. Bags have a city emblem and may be purchased for $2.25 at Black Diamond, the Department of Public Service, Kazmaier’s, Kroger, Luckey Farmers, Mini Engine Repair, Rite Aid and Walt Churchill’s Market. Generic bags will not be collected.
