Sylvania Township road crews and contractors collected a record 23,554 cubic yards of leaves from the area’s streets this past season.
Rob Nash, roads superintendent, told township trustees that the township road crews were able
to make five complete sweeps of streets in the township collecting leaves, Crews usually have a goal of at least three collections, but a year where there was only one significant snow and ice event allowed for more time than usual to collect leaves.
Mr. Nash noted that the amount of leaves collected were enough to fill more than 1,500 dump trucks.
The prior record for leaves picked up was 20,296 cubic yards set in 2016.
A reason for the increase, he said, is development in the township.
“Some of the streets we collect on weren’t streets,” before development.
