How do I dispose of dead leaves in the fall?

Citizens who wish to dispose of their dead leaves during the fall leaf pick-up schedule should rake their leaves to the curb and notify the Department of Public Works., please don't cover catch basins.  The leafing vacuum should sweep up the leaves within a few weeks. However, due to the sheer volume of leaves and problems with running the vacuum truck down certain streets, it is not guaranteed that leaves will be cleared away immediately. Citizens who wish to immediately dispose of their leaves may bag them in the purchased bags from the Utility Billing Office, Recreation Center, and Code Office.  Once bagged call into the yard waste line at 740-592-3343 and these bagged leaves will be cleared away with other yard waste on Tuesday and Friday every week.
