Final Leaf Collection Begins on December 7

The final round of leaf collection will begin on Monday, December 7th in Bowling Green.  Leaf collection is available for addresses that are eligible for City refuse/recycling collection and is not connected to the regular refuse/recycling collection schedule.

Crews will begin working in Ward 3.  When pickup in Ward 3 is completed, crews will then move thru Ward 4, Ward 1 and Ward 2. A map has been posted to the City’s website ( allowing residents to follow crews as they move through the City.

NOTE:  This will be the final leaf collection for 2020.  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.
