Leaf, Grass Clippings, Branches, Twigs & Brush Pickup

The Ravenna City Street Department provides curbside pickup service for leaves, grass clippings, branches, twigs and brush.  Grass clippings, branches, twigs and brush are no longer being picked up by our Street Department.  This service will resume sometime in April 2020 and go through October 2020.  See the events calendar on our Home page for more information and schedule.

 

Grass Clippings

Place yard waste in a biodegradable bag at the curb for pickup in an approved biodegradable bag. These bags are available at the Service Director’s Office free with proof of Ravenna City residency. Biodegradable bags are also for sale at area home improvement stores. Pick up crews may leave replacement bags while supplies last. The Street Department will be picking the bags up from the last two weeks of April until the last week in October. See the events calendar on our Home page for more information and schedule.  This service will begin again in April 2020 until October 2020.

 

Leaves

During Fall, rake all leaves to curb to be vacuumed by street crews. In Spring, Summer and into Fall, it is acceptable to place small quantities into the biodegradable bags for curb pickup.  See the events calendar on our Home page for more information and schedule.

Note:

  • Do NOT use bags during the annual Fall leaf pickup
  • Please rake leaves to the curb on the tree lawn
  • Do not rake leaves into the roadway – this clogs storm drains and can result in significant flooding
  • Do not park vehicles in front of leaf piles during leaf pickup

 

Branches, Twigs and Brush

Branches, twigs, tree limbs and brush (no more than 4” in diameter) may be placed on the curb for pickup. Items must be small enough for two men to handle. Please see event calendar for more information and schedule.  This service will resume in April 2020 until October 2020.
