The City of Ponca City’s Autumn Leaf Collection is now underway and ends on January 24, 2020. The City’s Crew will be working the City section by section, so it may take two weeks or more to collect the leaves due to the large volumes expected. 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 24, 2020. 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 No mulched leaves or leaves mixed with grass will be collected except by special pickup. Remember, mulching leaves and backyard composting helps provide a rich soil for next spring.
