The Village of Chagrin Falls Street Department will begin the annual leaf pick-up program on October 17th. Crews will be starting at the south end of town and working north. Leaves should be piled in long windrows within 4 feet of the curb on the tree lawn wherever possible. 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. Three rounds of leaf pick-up are planned, weather-permitting. Please have all leaves placed out for collection no later than Nov. 21.
