Leaf Collection

Residential Leaf Collection

The city of Strongsville provides leaf pickup for several weeks in the fall. To dispose of leaves at other times of the year, please bag them and set them out with your regular trash for pick-up. 

Schedule for Fall 2020

Leaf collection for the city will begin on October 19 and run through November 13.  Leaves must be out by 7 a.m. Monday on scheduled week of collection to ensure pick up. 
Crews will be making 1 (one) pass through each street during scheduled week.  Crews will NOT return.  
If you live north of Route 82 (Royalton Road), city crews will be in your area the following weeks:

  • Week of October 19

  • Week of November 2

If you live south of Route 82, city crews will be in your area the following weeks:

  • Week of October 26

  • Week of November 9

UPDATE: Due to a large volume of leaves, crews remained in the south end of town the week of Nov. 16. After completing those streets, they will return to the north end for one more pass. 
NOV. 23 UPDATE: Crews are in the north end of town. They are expected to be in the north end the week of Nov. 23 and most of the week of Nov. 30. No collections are scheduled after that. 

Leaf collection trucks double as snow plow trucks and must be converted as soon as possible.
Leaves should be piled along the roadside or curb, but not in the roadway or ditches and not more than 4 feet from the roadway.  THE CITY WILL NOT PICKUP IF THESE GUIDELINES ARE NOT FOLLOWED.
Branches, tree limbs, metal, rocks, firewood, or anything else that can cause damage to the leaf collection equipment must be sorted out from the leaf piles. Failure to do so will result in leaves not being collected.


Leaves collected by city crews will be sent to ecological collection locations approved by the state of Ohio.
