PRESS RELEASE

TO:             MEDIA AND RESIDENTS

FROM:       CITY OF ST. CLAIRSVILLE

SUBJECT:   ST. CLAIRSVILLE’S LEAF PICKUP

DATE:         NOVEMBER 14, 2022

RELEASE:   IMMEDIATE

The Street Department will begin loose leaf pickup with the vacuum truck on Monday, November 14, 2022, starting in Ward 1.  Ward 2 pickup is scheduled for Tuesday, November 15; Ward 3 will be picked up on Wednesday, November 16; and Ward 4 is scheduled for Thursday, November 17.  The City crews will go through Wards 1 – 4 again to pick up loose leaves on Friday, November 18, and on Monday through Wednesday (November 21 – 23) next week.

Any loose leaves must be raked within 10 feet of the curb but not placed on the sidewalks or streets. An important reminder, please do not rake — or use a leaf blower to push — leaves into the street drains because this practice causes maintenance problems for the storm sewer system.

The City of St. Clairsville’s Street Department has begun its bagged leaf pickup service.  All bagged leaves must be in paper lawn and leaf bags (not plastic) since these bags can be composted easily.  Many local stores sell the required paper lawn and leaf bags.  All bagged leaves should be placed near the curb but not on the sidewalk or street.  Bagged leaves collection will continue into next month; please call 740-695-1410 when your bagged leaves are ready for pick-up.

The City provides this service in the fall for leaf pickup ONLY. City crews are unable to accept any yard clippings, garden waste, tree and/or shrub debris of any kind at this time. Thank you.
