Curbside Leaf Program

The 2020 Leaf Program is starting Tuesday October 13. We have nine zones that we go through. We start in zone one (far east portion of the township) and work our way to zone nine ( far west portion of the township). When we first start the leaves are pretty light and we make it through the zones fairly rapidly as more leaves fall it obviously takes more time to get through the township.  The days we put on the website are projected (guesses) so our suggestion is always to get your leaves out as soon as possible and we will pick them up as quick as we can. Once the volume of leaves increase we will transition from one truck to two trucks. 

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 October 13, 2020 Township wide, starting in the eastern portion of the township and working to the west.
