Final Leaf Collection Begins on December 16

The final round of leaf collection will begin on Monday, December 16th in Bowling Green. Residents who receive City-provided refuse/recycling service are eligible for the leaf pick-up.

The City of Bowling Green leaf pickup crew will begin working in Ward 3. When pickup in Ward 3 is completed, the crew will then move thru Ward 4, Ward 1 and Ward 2. Pickup is by ward NOT rubbish collection districts.

NOTE: This will be the final leaf collection for 2019. Once the crews leave a street, they will not return.

Bowling Green residents may also take leaves to the drop-off site located behind the Public Works garage on Tarragon Drive (off East Poe Road). Note that brush and branches are not accepted at the drop-off site.

Residents may also want to consider using a recycling mower to return shredded leaves to their yards. Grass clippings and finely chopped leaves add vital nutrients and organic matter to the lawn, thus improving lawn health.
