The City of Grove City offers residential leaf collection in each of the City’s four defined areas, with two collection weeks, through Friday, Dec. 17. Crews travel each street once during the designated week.
Prior to 7 a.m. the Monday of the designated collection week, homeowners should rake only leaves to the grassy area between the street and sidewalk, or to the edge of the lawn, if there is no sidewalk. The service equipment works efficiently on leaves, but is easily damaged by branches, twigs, grass clippings, rocks and other debris. Leaf piles will not kill grass, although temporary fading may occur.
Do not rake or blow leaves into the street, as this can cause storm sewer blockages and parking issues. Vehicles should not be parked in front of, or on top of, leaves during scheduled collection weeks.

Residents opting to have leaves picked up prior to or after their scheduled date can place leaves in yard waste bags/containers for collection by Local Waste Services on their regular trash pickup day. An alternative is mower mulching, providing lawn nutrients and natural fertilizer.
Planned collection dates may change due to weather conditions and when the leaves fall.
