Fall leaf collection ends Dec. 9, 2019

Jackson Township service crews will provide fall leaf pick up starting in late October 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 crew members continually will make rounds in noted subdivisions through Dec. 9, 2019.

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 are subject to change depending on when leaves drop 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.
