City of Akron Leaf Removal Begins November 2

Akron, Ohio, Sept. 28, 2020— City of Akron leaf removal will begin Monday, November 2 in Ward 5. Signs will be posted in wards prior to pick-up dates. We remind residents not to rake leaves into the street until the day before scheduled leaf pickup. 

For residents wishing to have leaves removed prior to or after their scheduled pick-up date, the City offers three annual free curb service bulk pick-ups. Leaves must be bagged for early pick-up. To schedule, please contact the Mayor’s Action Center at 3-1-1 or (330) 375-2311.

We ask residents to comply with the following guidelines to make leaf removal safe and effective:

  • Do not allow children to play in leaves on or near the street
  • Do not place branches or any other debris in the street - only leaves
  • Do not rake leaves into the street after leaves have been removed from your street or you may be subject to a fine
  • Do not park vehicles on the street the day before your scheduled pick-up, until your leaves have been removed
  • Do not park vehicles over leaves - heat from the underside of the vehicle may cause a fire

Each of the wards will take more than one day to complete. Leaves must be on the street by the dates listed – if they are not out, they may not get picked up.  This schedule is subject to change in the event of adverse weather conditions. Changes to the schedule will be posted on the homepage. For more information, visit the Leaf Removal page on the City website or call the Mayor’s Action Center at 3-1-1 or (330) 375-2311.
