Leaf Pick-Up

The Village of Chagrin Falls Street Department will begin the annual leaf pick-up program on Monday, October 15, 2018. Crews will be starting at the south end of town and working north. Leaves should be piled in long windrows within of the curb on the tree lawn wherever possible. Leaves should not be piled up or around mailboxes, utility poles, street signs, trees or guardrails where our equipment can’t get to them. On streets with ditches, leaves should be raked as close to the road as possible in windrows, but not blocking the ditch. Leaves should not be raked into the street as they will cause drainage problems. Branches, twigs, and flower cuttings must not be put in the leaf piles as they will clog up the vacuum equipment and slow down the pick-up considerably. 3 rounds of leaf pick-up are planned through the Village, weather permitting. inclement weather will slow down the pick-up and may delay collection. Please have all leaves placed out for collection NO LATER THAN Sunday, November 25th. A final round of collection through the Village will start on Monday November 26, 2018. After the final pick-up, residents will have to bag their leaves for collection with their regular refuse.
