Crews to begin leaf collection in November

Jackson Township service crews will provide fall leaf pick up starting in November for residents in these township subdivisions: Anglebrook, Briarwood Hills, Casa Farms, Deer Trail Estates, Emersonia, Geyerwood, Grubb Farms, Lynnbrook, Mayfair Park, Robin Estates, Rocky Creek and Southern Grove. There is no collection schedule, but service crews will continually make rounds through noted subdivisions.

Leaves should be raked to the edge of roadways, preferably on the berm, and not blocking drainage pipes and catch basins. Branches will not be accepted. Pickup schedules may change depending on when leaves fall and weather-permitting.

Residents also may take their leaves to the Columbus Com-Til Compost Facility from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays. Go to columbus.gov/utilities/water-protection/comtil for directions and more information.
