2015 Leaf Pickup Details (status as of November 25, 2015)

Second round of leaf collection has begun!

North Bexley
On Stanwood at Broad headed north.
Central Bexley
On Brentwood at Roosevelt headed west.
South Bexley
Will be finishing Chelsea and then moving to Drexel at Brentwood heading north.
City crews will begin collecting leaves the week of October 19th, working their way west to east throughout the city.  The city will have one leaf removal crew in each section (north, central and south) of the city and progress updates will be posted daily on the front page of the city’s website.  This year's program will conclude in early to mid December, followed by a complete sweep of all alleys.

Below are a few simple guidelines to follow to ensure leaves are picked up in a timely and efficient manner:
  • Rake leaves to the back of the curb but not in the street.  If possible, please avoid placing leaf piles near trees, lights or signs.
  • Leaves will be collected through a series of three passes throughout the City, with three crews deployed in north, central, and south Bexley.
  • Please keep leaves out of storm water sewers and stream banks.  Leaf litter depletes oxygen levels within our streams and creeks, which can kill fish and other aquatic organisms.
  • Leaves can also be collected during scheduled yard waste collection dates if they are placed in paper yard waste bags or in a container marked “yard waste”.



Automated External Defibrillators (AED)

The Bexley Police Departments wants to thank the Bexley Community Foundation for the grant we received to replace the departments outdated AEDs.  

Sudden cardiac arrest can happen anywhere, anytime to people of all ages.  When this happens there is a 7% survival rate.  However, that percentage goes up to 45% if the victim is treated quickly.  This treatment in the City of Bexley comes from the quick, professional response of the Bexley Police Department and being properly equipped to provide temporary care until medical help arrives. 

Thank you Bexley Community Foundation for your support and partnership.


Broad Street Construction Update

The City of Bexley will begin a water line replacement project on Broad Street from Alum Creek to Gould Road starting July 27th (expected completion by end of November weather permitting). Construction will occur in two block increments and east bound traffic will be reduced to one lane while both north and south bound turning movements within the work zone will be prohibited during working hours. The city will provide updates via onsite message boards, as well as the city's website and the Bexley Blast regarding work zones and recommended detours.

  • Merkle Road south and north of Broad Street will be closed next week (Monday thru Friday) from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM (schedule and weather permitting).

  • Construction crews will continue working on the remaining service tie-ins, backfilling open trenches and place seed. Once complete this section of Broad Street including the gutter area will be thoroughly cleaned and swept.

  • Beginning November 23rd construction crews will remobilize at the intersection of Gould Road and Broad Street.

This water line project is Phase 1 of a 2-phase project, with steet resurfacing and aesthetic improvements scheduled to start in the Spring of 2016.  Both phases are funded by a 75% grant / 25% no-interest loan package from the State of Ohio Public Works Commission.

Please contact the City’s Department of Public Service at 614-559-4220 if you have any questions regarding this project.
