Leaf and Brush Pickup Schedules

From the City of Loveland:

Loveland’s 2016 Fall Leaf Collection schedule will begin on October 17 this year.  Leaf collection during this period will be done by a City crew using mechanical equipment similar to a vacuum cleaner.  Residents are instructed to rake leaves to a place near the street or curb.  Do not place leaf piles on the sidewalk, gutters, ditches, roads, or blocking fire hydrants.

In each of the neighborhoods or streets listed below, a crew will be working the area on the dates shown and the crew will be making one pass on each street during the period of collection. The schedule calls for each neighborhood to have two collection periods. Residents are requested to have leaves at the curb prior to the beginning date of the scheduled pick-up period in the following neighborhoods:

October 17 (Monday) and November 7 (Monday)

Brush Pick-Up

The 2016 fall brush pickup program will begin on Monday, November 14 and will run for five weeks.  Brush must be placed at the curb no later than Sunday night of the scheduled week of each collection.  The following will be our schedule for brush pickup:

November 14: Area of the City that has a Monday trash pickup.

November 21: Area of the City that has a Tuesday trash pickup.

November 28: Area of the City that has a Wednesday trash pickup.

December 5: Area of the City that has a Thursday trash pickup.

December 12: Area of the City that has a Friday trash pickup.

The following are guidelines established for the brush pick-up program:

  1. Limbs cannot exceed 10” in diameter at the cut section.
  2. Small twigs and sticks should be bundled with twine in bundles 12” in diameter.  Twigs or sticks can also be placed in a container at the curb, but no other yard waste should be in the containers.  Please, no loose piles of sticks and debris.
  3. Limbs should be placed at the curb with the cut section facing the street and all limbs should be facing the same direction.  This makes it easier and faster to handle.
  4. Brush must be placed at the curb or edge of roadway.  Do NOT place brush in the roadway, gutter, ditches, or on sidewalks.  Do NOT block fire hydrants.
  5. No leaves, pine needles, grass clippings, or other yard waste will be collected.  Any material not meeting these requirements cannot be collected and will be left at the curb.

Wood chips will be available again this year at the Public Works Department, 10980 Loveland-Madeira Road.  Anyone in the City who would like a full load of wood chips should call 513-707-1439.

Outside the regular pick-up schedule, residents are encouraged to come to City Hall to get a free voucher to drop off any yard waste to Evans Landscaping.

Help Granny’s Garden!

As some of you may know, when I am not running through the streets of Pheasant Hills I serve on the Board of the Granny’s Garden School in Loveland, Ohio. This 10-year old program teaches over 1,700 1st through 4th graders every week in outdoor gardens surrounding the Loveland Primary and Elementary Schools. Kids learn all about gardens, veggies, and how plants grow, but more importantly they learn math, science, biology and other lessons using the gardens as a fun and unique learning environment. It’s a truly great program.

And YOU CAN HELP. Granny’s Garden is 100% funded by donations and fundraisers. The Loveland School District does not provide one penny of funding for this truly amazing program. So what can you do to help?

Sign up for the iGive online shopping program. You register and then go shop online at any of 1,200 great stores like Macy’s, Amazon, Home Depot, Kohl’s and many of your favorite stores. Every dollar you spend provides a portion to Granny’s Garden School without costing you anything! You just shop, and Granny’s get to benefit from your buying since every participating retailer donates a percentage to iGive. Just sign up and register and Granny gets $5 bucks. Easy to do and feels good to do it.

Here is what you do to help us. Go to Granny’s Garden School iGive page and register to download the shopping widget….then just shop. That’s it! Your help will go a long way in keeping this powerful program moving forward teaching our school children to love the outdoors and learning together.

Won’t you help? If your wife, husband, partner or Mom does all the online shopping, please tell them to shop with iGive and Granny’s Garden School!

Thanks so much in advance for your help.
Chris Timman
