Leaves should be raked to the curb in piles or rows as close as possible, but not into the street. No brush, twigs or other material should be mixed with leaves as these items clog the vacuum equipment and slow the collection process.
Please remember these important safety points:
• DO NOT allow children to play in leaf piles near the street/curb
• DO NOT place branches or other debris in the leaf piles. Doing so may result in non-collection of the leaves
• DO NOT park vehicles on or near leaf piles; we encourage residents to use their driveways during leaf and snow season in order to keep roadways clear and accessible.
For additional information or questions — please call the Elyria Street Dept. at 440-322-3129 or the Safety Service Director's office at 440-326-1404
All leaves collected are composted and not dumped at the landfill
