Leaf collection begins

Oct. 13, 2013 @ 10:46 AM


Loose leaf collection is scheduled to begin this week.

Collection will be on a limited basis and will increase with leaf accumulation.

Loose leaves should be arranged in rows or piles at the roadside.

They should not interfere with road traffic or with the operation of the city’s storm drainage system.

Leaves should not be placed in gutters, street areas or in open ditches.

Leaf rows and piles should contain leaves only. There should be no broken glass, rocks, large sticks or other debris that could damage the collection equipment. Leaves containing such debris will not be collected until all extraneous items are removed.
