Leaf Collection

The Street Cleaning Division has completed leaf collection for the 2023 season.

Due to not collecting 80% or more of our normal volume in the first 4 Wards, we will be posting signs and providing additional pickup to Wards 5, 3, 6 and 10. 

Ward 5       December 9, 2023
Ward 3       December 12, 2023
Ward 6       December 14, 2023
Ward 10     December 18, 2023

If you live in one of the remaining 6 Wards (Ward 4, 8, 2, 1, 7, or 9) and have an additional pickup, once we complete 1 full round please rake your leaves to the curb and call 311 to schedule an additional pickup.

Beginning in October, the City of Akron will start its annual leaf removal program.  Signs will be posted in your neighborhood by ward with the day of the week we will start leaf collection.

Please keep in mind that it takes multiple days to complete each ward.  The schedule can change due to weather. The dates are listed below. Thank you for understanding and your patience.
