2016 Leaf Collection Extended Through December 8, 2016


 

Thursday December 1, 2016
NEWS RELEASE
Autumn Leaf Collection Extension

Due to the warm fall weather, autumn leaves have fallen slowly. The City of Elyria leaf collection program will extend through Thursday December 8, 2016. This is adding approximately one additional week to the previous schedule. Leaves should be raked to the curb in piles or wind-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.


Residents may dispose of leaves contained in brown paper composting bags at the Elyria Compost Center at 45 Chestnut Street through Saturday December 3, 2016 from 9am-2pm for more information:  www.barnesnursery.com


No leaf collection will occur after Thursday December 8, 2016. We encourage residents to rake remaining leaves to curb on or before Monday December 5, 2016.


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
