Leaf Collection Begins in Ponca City

Ponca City Now - November 13, 2023 6:13 am

The City of Ponca City will begin Autumn Leaf Collection on November 13, 2023 and end on January 19, 2024. The City is asking that residents who wish to have their leaves removed please follow these guidelines.
• Residents are asked to bag their leaves if possible. Bagged leaves placed in the regular refuse collection area will be collected free of charge until January 19, 2024. Bagged leaves will be picked up at the rate of 10 bags per pickup day.
• Loose leaves should be placed within three feet of the front curb, but not in the street gutter. If leaves are raked or blown into the street gutter they may clog the storm drains. Leaves found blown or raked into the street may result in a citation (per city code).
• No uncontainerized leaves will be collected in alleyways.
• No mulched leaves or leaves mixed with grass will be collected except by special pickup.
The City’s Crew will be working the city section by section so we ask for the public’s patience during this time. It may take two weeks or more to collect the leaves due to the large volumes expected.
Another option for getting rid of your leaves would be to backyard compost them. This would provide the gardener with a rich soil for next spring’s plantings.
Leaf collection will also be available by special pickup anytime during the year. Call 580-767-0411 for information on special pickups. Special pickups carry a minimum charge of forty-two dollars and sixty-nine cents ($42.69.)
