Curbside Leaf Program

The 2018 Leaf Program will continue until the week of DECEMBER 3 2018. Please remember these trucks are the same ones we use for snow and ice control. All of this is weather permitting, we may have to remove the leaf equipment and put snow and ice control equipment on the truck if we have a weather event that warrants that. If that happens we will put the leaf equipment back on the trucks and continue leaf pick up after the snow and ice event. Please continue to check the website for updates.
    The Township Road Department will start in area 1 and work their way to area 9. We will update the website daily on our progress. Please get your leaves out as soon as possible and we will pick them up as quick as we can. As of today November 9 2018 we will have our second truck running leaf pick-up. We are working overtime every day that is possible and will be working this Saturday November 10 2018 until noon. PLEASE REMEMBER THESE DATES ARE ESTIMATES.
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.

Questions about the program can be directed to the Road Department, (614) 878-3316 or e-mail
