Curbside leaf collection will begin the week of Nov. 2 and conclude the week of Dec. 7.
The City of Berea Service Department has prepared a leaf collection schedule for this Fall Season. During the collection season, Berea residents are reminded of the following information:
The week your street is scheduled for leaf collection, leaves must be ready for collection on the first day of the scheduled collection week. There will be one pass of each street per collection week. If the leaf wagon picks up your area earlier than the scheduled dates, they will return on the scheduled collection dates.
Leaves must be piled along the roadside or curb, but not in the roadway or ditches and not more than 5 feet from the roadway. Branches, tree limbs, metal, rocks, firewood, or anything else that will cause damage to the leaf collection equipment must be sorted out of the leaf piles for pickup.
- DO NOT pile leaves on dead ends, or other non-accessible areas. Leaves will not be collected!
- DO NOT stack leaves around Fire Hydrants. This is a fire safety issue.
- DO NOT rake leaves into the street. This can pose a safety hazard for vehicular traffic and safety of children playing. Additionally, piled leaves in the street are non-compliant with storm water management ordinances and could lead to related sewer problems.
Residents concerned about damage to their tree lawns due to leaf piles can bag the leaves and put them in brown yard waste bags, trash bags, or personal trash containers for collection on the regular trash collection day.
Leaf collection equipment is not available to operate in the spring.
