Toledo's 2023 Leaf Collection11/01/2023Now that leaves have been falling from the trees for a few weeks, Toledo has announced that the city’s 2023 leaf collection will start Monday and run through the end of the year. Toledo reminds you to park your car off the street when crews are scheduled to come to your neighborhood. There are several other ways to determine when crews will be on your street:Sign up for Toledo Text Alerts to be alerted when leaf collection crews will be in your neighborhood, and of any change in plans. Toledo Texts Alerts will notify residents two weeks prior, again one week prior to pick-up, and again when the collection is complete.Residents can refer to the leaf collection map on the city website for information on their specific addresses.Call Engage Toledo at 419-936-2020.Check the city's Facebook and Twitter accounts on Fridays.Watch for signs to be posted on your street. City crews will not be able to return to an area once we have completed collection, unless it is a second pass area, and crews will return according to the schedule. If you miss collection, do not place leaves in the street. At that point, the options for residents are to:Compost the leaves.Take the leaves to one of five drop-off locations that will be available for free disposal.Dispose of leaves in your gray trash container.Drop-off locations:Bowman ParkDetwiler ParkRavine ParkWoodsdale ParkElmdale Woodlot, 221 Elmdale Rd.open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through SaturdayAll vehicles should be off the street when leaf collection crews come to your neighborhood in order to get the street as clean as possible.
