The City of Canton's Leaf Pick-Up Program will be starting for the 2018 fall season.
The schedule goes by garbage route and is as follows:
Monday garbage route - November 5-9
Tuesday garbage route - November 12-16
Wednesday route - November 19-23
Thursday route - November 26-30
Friday route - December 3-7
Residents who live on Monday's garbage route will have leaves picked up every day during the week of November 5 through November 9. The following week, crews will cover Tuesday's route but will continue to circle back through Monday's route as well. Crews will continue to circle back through previous routes in an attempt to get all leaves picked up before snow removal becomes necessary.
The City asks that residents rake leaves only to the terrace and not out into the street/gutter or blocking sidewalks and that the leaves be free of sticks. Leaves clog the street drains and create flooded streets during fall rains.
For those who would like to dispose of leaves before their route is picked up, the City's landscape disposal area, located at the south edge of Canton on Cedar Street, is open daily from dawn until dusk.
If you choose to burn your leaves, please remember that the burning ordinance allows burning only on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. Use common sense to burn on calm days, and never leave a fire unattended at any time. Please call the Public Works Dept. at 647-5022 with any questions.
