City employees will be out starting October 20th testing our leaf vacuum equipment. Three crews will be working their way from west to east with the intent to fully mobilize the following week. This program will conclude the week of December 1st (all alleys will be collected the week of December 8th). Below are a few simple guidelines to follow to ensure leaves are picked up in a timely and efficent 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”.
