Beginning the week of Monday, October 5, Dublin will begin the citywide leaf collection program. Collections are based on a two-zone system. Collections occur in your zone beginning on the Monday of each pick up week between 7 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Please have your leaves at the curb by 7 a.m. the Monday of each pick up week. Collections will take the entire week to complete in each zone.
Muirfield Village is in Collection Area 1. Mark the following collection dates on your calendar:
November 30 - December 4
Residents should stop raking leaves on Sunday, November 29 for the final pickup in our zone.
Residents can still bag leaves in biodegradable bags for weekly curbside yard waste pick-up on weeks when the City crews are not doing leaf collection in their neighborhood / zone.
Rake leaves curbside to the grassy area by the street. Never put leaf piles in the street. Leaves left in the street can be washed down storm drains where they can cause algae and impact local water quality.
Leaf piles will not kill grass. Although they may cause it to temporarily discolor, the grass will grow back, rich and green, in the spring. To prevent grass from discoloring, rake your leaves immediately before your scheduled pickup date.
After the leaf collection period ends, leaves are to be placed in biodegradable paper yard waste bags or in a trash can designated for yard waste only. The bags or cans should weigh no more than 50 pounds each when filled and will be collected as part of the normal curbside-composting program every Monday.
Residents are reminded that leaf piles that are mixed with grass trimmings, branches, brush or other non-leaf content will not be collected through this service. Residents with branches, brush, etc. may have them collected through the curbside chipper program by calling Streets & Utilities and scheduling a collection.
To schedule a chipper collection, call Streets & Utilities’ Information Line at 614.410.4780 (24 hours a day) or the Streets & Utilities office at 614.410.4750 (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.). You can also schedule a pick up online using the City of Dublin Service Request Center.

It’s Clean Up Time!
Leaves turning color and falling from the trees is a sure sign that fall has arrived. With this season, you can see and truly appreciate the beauty of our community and our neighborhoods.
It’ll soon be time to store away your summer flower pots, clear your landscape beds, and prepare for winter. Now is the perfect time to complete those summer projects that somehow didn’t get finished, and to find space inside for those items that found their way to the yard over the summer.
Unfortunately, the office has been notified that some property owners have not followed the requirements of the deed regarding care and maintenance of their yards.
There may be situations where homeowners have simply overlooked the amount of ‘treasures’ that have accumulated in the backyard. Other situations may be that homeowners just haven’t taken time to look around and really see the condition of their property. It is a bit surprising and shocking to walk the paths and observe the poor condition of some backyards. We’ve been asked to tour the neighborhoods, note poor yard conditions and notify homeowners of the problems so that cleanup can occur before cold temperatures arrive.
Members of the Association staff will start canvassing the neighborhoods shortly to observe properties that need to be brought up to standard. Where problems are found, a violation notice will be sent to the property owner. Before we start the neighborhood tour, we wanted to give you a ‘heads up’, a chance to get out there and clean any problem areas, store away those summer accessories, and make repairs to the deck, patio, house, playsets, or remove the dead trees on your property.
We know that giving you a notice beforehand is helpful in planning your outdoor maintenance time. Please take advantage of this alert; spruce up your property now before winter and before our staff visits.
Some items that you may need to take care of include:
Clear landscape beds and gardens of weeds
Remove dead trees, especially ash trees affected by the emerald ash borer. Call the office for assistance in getting tree removal approved.
Grind out tree stumps and restore the area.
Prune shrubs and trees to avoid overgrowth and damage to the house or roof and keep the shrub growth in balance with other landscaping.
Remove from the yard and store inside (or on a patio or deck) flower pots, lawn chairs, kids’ toys, sports nets, yard and garden equipment and supplies.
Keep the lawn mowed and landscape beds edged.
Keep trampolines and other permanent sports equipment in good condition and the area around free of weeds and overgrown grass.
Check basketball equipment to see if it needs re-painting. (Portable basketball units must be stored inside when not in use.)
This office certainly appreciates your efforts in maintaining your property so that we continue to be a community you and your neighbors can be proud of. We would rather not have to patrol the neighborhoods and would much rather have you police your own property, but, from the calls we’ve received, not all our residents make the effort needed to maintain Muirfield’s standards.
Please do not take offense at our visit through your neighborhood; take the time now, while it’s lovely outside, to clean and prep for winter, and be proud of your property. We are as concerned as you are that your property values remain attractive, that your neighbors’ homes are maintained at the standard required by the deed and that you can survey your neighborhood with a sense of contentment and satisfaction. Help us with this, won’t you?
The Muirfield Association is pleased to pass on this message from the Muirfield Village Civic Association, Civic Action Committee.
Dublin School Redistricting
Good news regarding school redistricting! The proposed map indicates that redistricting will leave Muirfield Village untouched and that there will be no changes affecting any students in Muirfield Village. The map can be viewed here.
It should be noted that this map is a draft and has not been officially voted on yet. In light of this, residents are encouraged to attend a meeting to express their appreciation and commend the redistricting committee for keeping our students close to home and for not splitting up our subdivisions.
The Dublin Schools have announced times and places for three public meetings regarding redistricting.The plan will be adopted by the end of this year, before winter break, and will go into effect in August of 2016. Here is the schedule, with all meetings beginning at 7 pm:
