The first two rounds of leaf pick-up will be complete by the end of day Tuesday, November 17, 2020. Beginning Wednesday, November 18, 2020, crews will begin a final complete pass through the city. We emphasize that leaves need to be raked to the curb, but not out into the street. Raking leaves into the street results in clogging up storm sewers. Please refrain from parking on the street when leaf pick-up is scheduled for that area.
A list of streets, in the order of pick-up, can be found on the City’s website: http://mountvernonohio.org. It will be updated daily after leaf pick-up begins. How quickly or slowly we reach your street depends on the weather and how many people do or do not have their leaves raked to the curbs.
Additionally, the leaf drop-off area remains open. It is located at:
Knox County Compost Facility
7425 Thayer Road
Mount Vernon, OH 43050
The facility will be open from 8 am-3 pm Monday-Saturday until November 30. The drop off area is for loose leaves only. All bags or other containers must be removed from the area after they are emptied.
Again, please have your leaves raked to the curb and NOT OUT INTO THE STREET. RAKING LEAVES INTO THE STREET RESULTS IN CLOGGING UP STORM SEWERS. PLEASE REFRAIN FROM PARKING ON THE STREET WHEN LEAF PICK UP IS SCHEDULED FOR THAT AREA.
