The City of Mount Vernon will begin picking up leaves on Monday, November 1, 2021. We will have three machines operating this season. The machines will be picking up all of the main streets first, then proceed to the side streets and outlying areas.
We emphasize that leaves be raked to the curb, but NOT OUT INTO THE STREET. RAKING LEAVES INTO THE STREET RESULTS IN CLOGGING UP STORM SEWERS. Additionally, please do not rake leaves around utility poles or sign post; the leaf machines are not able to get around those. 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.
Again, please have your leaves raked to the curb away from sign posts and utility poles 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.
