Place yard waste in a biodegradable bag at the curb for pickup in an approved biodegradable bag. Bags will become available at the Service Director’s Office and also at the Water Billing office on April 10, 2023, and go through October 13, 2023. These bags are 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 full week in October. We will provide up to six (6) bags per residence and the crews will provide bags up to as many as they picked up.
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. Be sure to check the events calendar on our Home page for more information and schedule when this program begins the first part of November 2023.
- 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
