We thank you for your patience as we balance weather, man-power, and unplanned mechanical issues that may arise during the schedule.
BAG LEAVES: **Kimble Refuse Co. will accept bagged leaves, on standard pick-up days, after (not during) our city-wide leaf collection**.
DEBRIS: Avoid placing debris (sticks, trash, bricks, stones, etc.) in or on the leaf piles as this could damage the leaf machine or injure the workers. Sticks can be bundled, tied, and placed at the curb for regular trash pick-up.
PROPER PLACEMENT: please place your leaves on the tree lawn or if none is available, place leaves directly behind the sidewalk.
STORM SEWERS: Please refrain from raking leaves into the street as it can cover the storm drains and cause flooding and also be a hazard for bicyclists.
VEHICLES: Any vehicle(s) parked on the street blocking workers from getting to the leaf piles will be passed up to avoid damage to the vehicle.
Paradise Composting on 6203 Akron Rd., Smithville and 4300 Mechanicsburg Rd, Wooster will be open all year. Appointments only, plus load fee. Please call 330-669-3141.
