Leaf Pickup will Begin October 23rd

Crews in North, South, and Central will begin west and move east starting Oct. 23rd

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 mailboxes, trees, lights or signs.
  • Leaves will be collected on a weekly basis as the city will deploy one crew in north, central and south Bexley.
  • Please keep leaves out of storm water sewers and stream banks.  Leaves cause bacteria that depletes 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 yard waste bags or in a container marked “yard waste”.

If weather cooperates, this program will conclude in early to mid December, with all alleys collected following the completion of street pickup.

The Teal Pumpkin Project


Help Create a Safer Halloween for All!

Every child should be able to experience the joy and tradition of trick-or-treating on Halloween. But kids with food allergies are often left out of the fun, since most candy is off limits. The Teal Pumpkin Project, coordinated by the Food Allergy Research & Education organization (FARE), helps make sure all children will come home on Halloween night with something they can enjoy. It just takes one simple act: offering non-food treats, such as glow sticks or small toys, as an alternative to candy. Last year, households from all 50 states and 14 countries participated. This is a worldwide movement to create a safer, happier Halloween for all trick-or-treaters. Trick-or-Treat in Bexley will be observed on Tuesday, October 31st, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm.

How to Take Part:

  • Provide non-food treats for trick-or-treaters.
  • Place a teal pumpkin in front of your home to indicate to passersby that you have non-food treats available.
  • Display a free printable sign to explain the meaning of your teal pumpkin. We have some printed at City Hall you can pick up!

Learn more about the effort at the Teal Pumpkin Project website.

We're offering another opportunity this fall for residents of Bexley to safely and conveniently dispose of prescription drugs.
