Leaf Pickup Begins!

The Columbia City’s Street Department is announcing that their annual leaf pickup will begin on Monday October 21, 2019. The crews will be following the same routes as last year. The City has two (2) leaf vacuums. The City will be divided into half down Main Street, with one machine in each half, running at the same time. The pickup is at street side only. Our vacuum equipment will not fit in the alleys.

This is a “one pass only” per week for seven weeks. The Street Department asks that you have your leaves ready before the Monday of each week. Please rake leaves up to the curb not in the street. Leaves in the street cause many problems in bad weather plugging storm sewers. This is leaf pickup so please do not put limbs on the leaf piles.
(Limb pick up will be done for the year after October 7th.) If possible try not to have cars parked in front of the leaf piles. Leaves will not be raked from behind parked cars due to time restraints so the crews can get through the city each week.
