Toledo leaf collection begins Monday in the 43613 ZIP Code area. The 43614, 43615, and 43623 ZIP Codes also will be done next week, Mayor Jack Ford said yesterday.
Every ZIP Code will get one sweep, and the 43606, 43613, 43614, 43615, and 43623 areas will be collected twice because they account for 60 percent of the leaves.
The schedules will be announced weekly and also will be posted on the city's Web site, www.seetoledo.com.
City officials said signs will be posted in neighborhoods announcing leaf pickups. They said residents should avoid moving leaves into the street until leaf collection.
