Fall Leaf Collection
Leaf collection will begin when an abundant amount of leaves begin to fall and continue until November 30th. Leaves should be raked very close to the curb but not around mailboxes, telephone poles and street signs. Flower bed and garden debris will not be accepted. Please bag leaves in a biodegradable bag if you have additional leaves beyond November and call the Street Department at 834-8810 for pickup.
The Village of Burton will hold Trick or Treat on Sunday, October 31st from 6PM to 7:30PM. If you will be handing out candy, please make sure to turn your porch light on. We ask that you ensure 6-foot social distancing while distributing treats and recommend the use of face coverings. As recommended by the Ohio Department of Health (ODH), social distancing can be accomplished by placing treats on porch steps or a table in the driveway with a sign asking children to take only one. ODH recommends using creative ways to distribute treats, such as a candy “slide” made of PVC pipe, or hanging treats from a wall or fence. ODH suggests setting up hand-sanitizing stations if children select their own treats from a bowl/common container.
