Leaf Collection  

Collected on a Daily Basis Monday - Friday

The City of Bexley began leaf pickup on October 29th. The crews began on the west side of the City and will be moving east. Each day, Monday through Friday, the pickup crews will be designated to a different section of the City.  Please check our website daily for updates.

Friday, November 16th:

Round 2: 

  • north crew is on Parkview at Clifton heading north
  • central crew is on Parkview at Bryden heading south
  • there is no crew in south Bexley today

Leaf Collection Guidelines:

  • Rake leaves to the back of the curb but not in the street.
  • Please keep leaves out of storm sewers and stream banks. Leaves can cause bacteria that depletes the oxygen and can kill fish and other stream organisms.
  • Leaves can also be collected during scheduled yard waste collection dates if they are placed in paper bags and marked “yard waste”.

Neighbors Helping Neighbors Volunteers Needed

As the temperatures get colder and we prepare for the winter elements, we are looking for volunteers for our "Neighbors Helping Neighbors" program. This program was designed to help the neighbors in our community who are unable to rake leaves or shovel sidewalks (and other maintenance needs) due to physical constraints. We pair volunteers with neighbors close to their home, so the commute to volunteer is never far. If you'd like to be added to our list of volunteers, please email David Hrdlicka, the City's Code Enforcement Officer. Any help is greatly appreciated! For more information on this program, please visit!
