[ARCHIVED] Leaf Pickup Program

Lima Leaf Pickup Begins November 13th

The City of Lima’s Public Works Department is gearing up for this year’s leaf pickup program! Starting on November 13th, 2023 residents of the first, fourth, fifth, and sixth wards are asked to rake and pile leaves to the curb lawn – not in the street. Pickup in the second, third, and seventh wards will occur as crews progress. Review the City Ward Map to determine your ward.

As the leaves have already started to fall, small accumulations of leaves may be bagged and placed out with the regular trash pickup. Leaf bags are available to City of Lima residents at no cost and can be obtained at 900 South Collett Street or the Billing and Collection office located at 424 North Central Avenue.

Prior to the start of pickup, large amounts of tree and leaf debris can be taken to the Lima Compost Facility located at 1227 East Hanthorn Road.

Residents will need to show a copy of their water bill to be able to obtain leaf bags and access the Compost Facility.

Residents are requested to follow these helpful hints when raking their leaves:

  • Rake all leaves to the curb lawn, not in the street. Our crews have the equipment to rake them from the curb lawns. When leaves are raked into the street, vehicles break them down and this creates problems with pickup. This also creates a safety hazard as children playing in the street are not noticeable by drivers.
  • Make sure all piles of leaves are free of rocks, junk, grass clippings, limbs, and other debris.

Residents are requested to refrain from piling leaves on the curb lawn other than their scheduled ward pickup. Once leaf pickup has started, weekly updates will be provided through the media so residents can anticipate the arrival of City work crews.
