City Fall Leaf Collection to Start Oct. 24

Posted Monday, October 17, 2022.

Leaf pick-up for the City of Huntington will begin Monday, October 24, 2022, weather permitting.

Updates will be posted on the City of Huntington’s Facebook page on a regular basis, or can be obtained by calling City Services at (260) 356-4720.

For example: We will start in Zone 1 (Monday’s trash route) and continue into Zones 2-5 after completing a pass through each zone. After all zones have been collected, we will start over in Zone 1 until leaf season is done (usually by the end of the year).

Leaf collection may occur on any day of the week. It is important for residents to have leaves ready for pick-up by 7 a.m. on Monday.

To schedule pick-up of leaves placed in brown bags, residents may call (260) 356-4720 and follow the prompts, and those bags will be picked up every Tuesday.

There will be no leaf collection on the following holidays:

  • Thanksgiving: Thursday, November 24, and Friday, November 25.
  • Christmas: Friday, December 23, and Monday, December 26.

Preparing Leaves for Pick-up:

Leaves will only be collected if they are raked to the curb in front of the residence or placed in brown bags and placed at the curb for collection.

  • Do not rake leaves into the streets. This will not let water get to the drains.
  • Other yard waste should not be mixed with the leaves.
  • Cars should not be parked on or in front of leaf piles. If there is a vehicle blocking the leaves we will not be able to pick them up.

Safety and Maintenance:

  • Parents should remind children not to play in leaf piles near the street!
  • Residents should make sure that leaves are not near a storm drain.
  • Residents should ensure that storm drains are clear of debris.
