Leaf Collection Interactive Map
THE 2018 CITY OF TOLEDO LEAF COLLECTION PROGRAM BEGAN MONDAY, NOVEMBER 12TH.
Please note this change for the 2018 leaf program: the city will be utilizing street sweeping maps, rather than performing collection in order of zip codes like in previous years. The purpose of this change is to improve tracking locations of where crews are performing collection in order to provide citizens a more accurate idea of when leaves will be picked up in their area. Crews will work together in larger groups to complete each map before moving on to the next area. The schedule is a "floating schedule" that may change daily due to weather conditions and crew movements. The remaining areas that require leaf pickup are listed on the schedule in the order they will be worked.
To find your street sweeping area that will be utilized for your leaf collection pick up, please input your address in the interactive map below in the "Find address or place" box. The area will be in red font and may be displayed under the search result box.

Leaf collection is performed in the fall to help prevent leaves from clogging the sewer system, create safe driving situations, and maintain a clean and healthy city. The program is scheduled to take place for 6 weeks, with a goal of collecting a majority of the leaves before the first snowfall. Leaves are collected using two methods. Curbed residential streets are collected by using front-end loaders that push the leaf piles to the end of the street where they are then loaded onto trucks and hauled away. Street sweepers will follow the loaders to finish sweeping the remainder, leaving a clean street. Unimproved streets, along with main streets, will be collected using a leaf vacuum.
Residents are asked to not park on the street when leaf pickup is scheduled in their area. This will allow city crews to work more efficient and not miss picking up your leaves.
- Pile leaves along curb line of your residential street no more than 2 days prior to your scheduled leaf pick up date
- Keep storm inlets clear of leaves to prevent flooding and clogging of sewers
- Mulch leaves, which add nutrients to your lawn
- Brown paper biodegradable bags of leaves may be left at the curb
Residents should NOT:
- Mix branches, twigs or garbage with leaves
- Dump leaves in ditches or creeks
