City of Xenia releases 2020 leaf collection schedule
The City will be collecting leaves at the curb from November 9th through December 11th. The City is divided into two zones and each zone is designated two rounds of collection during this time. Zone 1 includes all areas north of Main Street and Zone 2 includes all areas south of Main Street. Main Street addresses will be picked up with Zone 1.
The collection dates are as follows:
Zone 1 - November 9th through November 13th
Zone 2 – November 16th through November 20th
(There will not be any leaf collection the week of November 23rd)
Zone 1 - November 30th through December 4th
Zone 2 – December 7th through December 11th
City Staff would like to remind citizens of these important points:
* Leaves need to be raked to the curb BEFORE the Monday on your pick up week.
Crews could be at your curb any time during that week.
* It is very important that cars are not parked in the leaf pick up area.
Crews cannot reach a leaf pile if a car is parked within 10 feet.
* Piles have to contain leaves only! Leafing equipment cannot pickup sticks, limbs or trash.
Residents may also notice leaf crews picking up leaves the week of November 2nd. This is the week that the leafing machines are tested and tuned up. Crews may pick up leaves that are already at the curb to test the machines. Leaf crews will go back to the test areas during the scheduled weeks.
Residents also have the option of mulching leaves or bagging them and taking them to the Greene County Recycling Center on Greene Way Blvd.
