Curbside Leaf Program

The 2019 Leaf Program will begin on Tuesday October 15. The township road department will begin in area 1 and work our way through to area 9. This process will repeat throughout the leaf season which typically ends around the end of November to early December. We will start with one truck and transition to two trucks once the leaf volume dictates that. We will do our best to estimate the next time we will be in each zone. Our suggestion to the residents as always is please get your leaves out as soon as possible and we will pick them up as quick as we can.

For any questions about the program, please contact the Road Department at 878-3316

The Prairie Township Trustees are asking residents not to rake their leaves in the street for collection.

Rake leaves to the green space between the curb and sidewalk, if you have no sidewalk then rake leaves to the edge of the road berm.

Do not place leaves in the roadway or pile them around parked cars or fire hydrants

Leaf pickup will start in mid October Township wide, starting in the eastern portion of the township and working to the west.
