Leaf pickup programs underway in Seymour, Columbus

Residents of Seymour can now have their leaves picked up.

Mayor Craig Luedeman’s office says the Department of Public Works began the program this week. Officials say that leaf pickup will be the day after your trash pickup, weather permitting.

Leaves should be raked to the edge of lawn, as close to the curb as possible, but not into the street and should be free of branches and trash.

The leaf pickup program in Columbus began earlier this month and runs through Dec. 16th.

You should have your leaves raked to the curb but not in the street by 7 a.m. on the same day as your trash pick up. You can also use your yard waste Toter to put leaves out for pickup, but there should be no sticks or woody material in the Toter.

If you want to bag your leaves, you bring them to the compost site at the Department of Public Works, which is at 2250 Kreutzer Drive, off South Gladstone Avenue. The bags must be emptied into the compost row and then the bags must be taken from the site.
