Fall Leaf Collection 2021
Leaf collection will begin the week of October 25 and generally runs through early-mid December (weather permitting). 

With continued climate change, each leaf season presents more challenges. The majority of the trees in Westlake have not started changing yet. That means the bulk of the leaves will likely fall when the snow could begin to fall. If that happens, leaf equipment will be switched over to snow and ice equipment, and that will postpone leaf collection. We thank you in advance for your patience. 

Please check the Daily Leaf Update  for more information.

Collection Guidelines

  • Only leaves will be collected. Please do not mix branches or grass cuttings with leaves, as this will plug the machines and slow the collection process.
  • Place the leaves on the tree lawn. Do not place leaves in the street.
  • Please remember to keep the catch basins in front of house and in the street clear to reduce flooding during heavy rains. Remove grass clippings, brush and leaves whenever possible.
  • Please do not park vehicles in front of leaf piles. 
If you miss your collection or do not want to wait until the Service Department collects on your street, you can bag your leaves for Rumpke rubbish collection. Bags must be less than 50 lbs. each.
