FALL LEAF COLLECTION

Update 11/21/14: Leaf collection was suspended due to freezing temperatures. Check the city's website for current schedule: http://dublinohiousa.gov/services/fall-leaf-collection/

It's that time of the year! Leaves are changing color and starting to fall. Citywide curbside leaf collection will begin the week of Monday, October 13 based on a two-zone system.

Muirfield is in Zone 1, which means leaves will be collected by the City of Dublin as follows:

Week of Oct. 13 to Oct. 19
Week of Oct. 27 to Nov. 2
Week of Nov. 10 to Nov. 16
Week of Nov. 24 to Nov. 30
Week of Dec. 1 to Dec. 7

Most importantly, rake leaves right. The weekend before your scheduled collection, rake leaves to the curb, NOT into the street. Leaves that are left in the street can be washed down storm drains and cause algae blooms in Dublin's beautiful waterways.

Do not rake leaves into the cul-de-sacs or islands. They will not be collected and will just blow back into your yard or a neighbor’s yard. The Muirfield Association does not pick up leaves; they will only be collected by the city.

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.

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 at 614.410.4750 (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) or online at http://dublinohiousa.gov/request/schedule-chipper-service/.

Leaf collection occurs beginning on the Monday of each pick-up week between 7 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Have your leaves at the curb by 7 a.m. the Monday of each pick-up week. Collections will take the entire week.

Stop raking December 1 for leaf pickup. After December 1, residents can still bag leaves in biodegradable bags for weekly curbside yard waste pick-up.
