GALION — The fall season is here and the Galion Service Department is prepared to begin leaf collection. Work is tentatively scheduled to start on Monday, Oct. 22.
City residents should rake leaves into the tree lawn in front of their homes to be picked up by the city. Please avoid putting leaves in the road 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. 19 and 20, and Nov. 16 and 17, from 7:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. each day.
Crews go through one city ward at a time to collect leaves. They try to hit each ward every 7-10 days depending on manpower.

- Ward 2 – north of Harding Way, east of Market Street
- Ward 3 – south of Harding Way, east of Market Street
