There are several other ways to determine when crews will be on your street:
- Sign up for Toledo Text Alerts to be alerted when leaf collection crews will be in your neighborhood, and of any change in plans.
- Toledo Texts Alerts will notify residents two weeks prior, again one week prior to pick-up, and again when the collection is complete. The link to sign up is: toledo.oh.gov/alerts
- Residents can refer to the map on the city website for information on their specific addresses. The map will be posted at this link: toledo.oh.gov/leaf-pickup.
- Call Engage Toledo at 419-936-2020.
- Check the city Facebook and Twitter accounts on Fridays.
- Watch for signs to be posted on your street.
“In an effort to complete leaf collection by the end of the year, we are asking for the public’s help,” Mayor Kapszukiewicz said. “Residents should rake or blow leaves into the street, just over the curb, as close as possible to their leaf collection date. Do not place leaves in the street weeks ahead of time. That will clog sewers and cause flooding. Consider mulching leaves at home.
City crews will not be able to return to an area once we have completed collection, unless it is a second pass area, and crews will return according to the schedule. If you miss collection, do not place leaves in the street. At that point, the options for residents are to:
- Compost the leaves.
- Dispose of leaves in your gray trash container.
- Take the leaves to one of four transfer locations that will be available for free disposal. They are at Bowman Park, Detwiler Park, Ravine Park, and the former ODOT facility at Detroit and Glendale avenues. The sites will be open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Saturday, beginning Nov. 1.
City crews may work ahead of schedule where possible. In the event crews begin pickup on a street before the scheduled pickup date, they will return again during the scheduled week.
All vehicles should be off the street when leaf collection crews come to your neighborhood in order to get the street as clean as possible. City crews will leave a tag at the homes where parked vehicles prevented the collection of all leaves. It will include information on what to do with leaves that are left behind under vehicles.
Curbed streets will be marked complete once a street sweeper has passed. Crews will attempt to complete a street in one day but it may extend into a second day.
