UPCOMING BOARD OF TRUSTEES MEETING DATES: June 7 & 21

3rd LEAF COLLECTION

The beginning of the third cycle of leaf collection along the streets of Sylvania Township is due to begin Dec. 21, according to Rob Nash, superintendent of the township’s road and service department.

The third cycle through the township roadways was originally set to begin Nov. 30,.

Mr. Nash said trees shed their leaves earlier than usual this year, which slowed progress at the outset of the collection cycle, but now has the benefit of there being fewer leaves left to pick up.  He also noted that it was difficult this year to find people willing to take the seasonal job to provide additional help.

He said contractors have been used for some of the work and township employees have been working six days a week in an effort to keep up with the annual task.

He added that the department intends to finish three sweeps through the township, but added that the effort is always subject to weather conditions.

He pointed out that as he was discussing the issue, he had pulled some trucks from leaf collection and put them to work spreading salt as snow began to fall.

“We’ll just keep working at getting a third cycle of leaf collection as long as we can,” he said.
