GALION -- The fall season is here and the Galion Service Department will begin leaf collection on Monday, Oct. 19.
Crews will begin in neighborhoods in the north half of the city on Monday and Tuesday, and move to the south half on Wednesday and Thursday.
City residents may rake leaves into the tree lawn in front of their homes to be picked up by the city. Please get piles as close to the street as possible but avoid putting leaves in the street or over storm drains.
Do not include branches, wood chips or other yard waste materials, as this may damage equipment. Yard waste not collected by the city may be taken to the Taylor Road Composting Facility on Oct. 16 and 17, from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each day.
Also, do not park vehicles in front of leaf piles. Yards will be skipped if equipment cannot get close enough to the leaves.
