Curbside Leaf Program

The 2021 Leaf Program: The Roads, Cemeteries, and Parks staff will begin collecting leaves starting the week of October 12, 2021. We will make our way through the township starting in area 1 and working through area 9. We repeat that process throughout leaf season. We do not go back to any areas until we have finished a complete cycle. When we first start the leaves are pretty thin so we make it through the township fairly quick. Once the leaves start falling in greater amounts the time it takes to get through the township increases. I tell residents to get their 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 614-878-3316

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 12, 2021 Township wide, starting in the eastern portion of the township and working to the west.
