The fall season is here and the Galion Service Department began leaf collection this week. City residents may rake leaves into the tree lawn in front of their homes to be picked up by the city. Please avoid putting leaves in the road or over storm drains.
Do not include branches, wood chips or other yard waste materials, as this may damage the leaf equipment. Yard waste not collected by the city may be taken to the Taylor Road Composting Facility on Oct. 19 and 20, and Nov. 17 and 18, from 7:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. each day.
Crews go through one quadrant of the city at a time to collect leaves. They try to hit each quadrant every 7-10 days depending on manpower.
Quadrant 1 – north of Harding Way, west of Market Street
Quadrant 2 – north of Harding Way, east of Market Street
Quadrant 3 – south of Harding Way, east of Market Street
Quadrant 4 – south of Harding Way, west of Market Street
