For the residents of Wauseon, the last pick-up date for brush left at the curb is during the week of Oct. 26.
Leaf collection will begin the week of Nov. 2 and last throughout November. When piling leaves, please do not place the leaves on top of brush as the city equipment cannot pick up leaves that have been mixed with brush or other items.
Please rake the leaves to the curb, but do not put them in the street. Piles of leaves will plug up the storm sewers which can cause local flooding. The city crews will pick up leaves twice in the north and south parts of town during leaf season.
Leaves can also be dropped off anytime at the Public Works Garage. The leaves may be dumped in the compost pit along with flowers and garden waste. Please do not bring brush or shrubs. The compost pit is located on the back drive from E. Linfoot Street.
Call the Public Works Department at 419-335-8376 for any additional information.
