The first round of leaf pick-up will be complete by the end of day Thursday, November 17, 2022. Crews will then begin a second and final complete pass through the city beginning with main streets. 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. Additionally, DO NOT rake leaves around trees, fire hydrants, sign posts, mailboxes, or close to intersections.
Furthermore, the leaf drop-off area remains open 7 days a week. Remember, the drop-off area is for loose leaves only; all bags or other containers must be removed from the area after they are emptied. The drop-off area is located at:
Knox County Compost Facility
7425 Thayer Road
Mount Vernon, OH 43050
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.
