Thu, 10/09/2014 - 12:20pm

Mayor Scott Schertzer is announcing that leaf collection for city residents will begin Monday, October 20 and continue through Friday, December 12, 2014.  The three options for disposal of leaves by city residents are:

  1. Place leaves in the tree lawn area to be vacuumed.

    A vacuum-type collector will collect leaves raked to the tree lawn area, with each street having leaves collected during the leaf pick-up season.

    As a note, residents should NOT rake leaves into the street in order to keep from blocking catch basins and drains, so water can drain properly into the city’s storm sewer system.
     

  2. Place leaves in biodegradable paper bags for City pick up, which will follow yard waste limits of a pick-up of 3 bags per week.

    Residents wishing to bag leaves may do so by placing them in clearly marked biodegradable paper bags sold at local retail stores.  The filled bags should be placed at curbside for pick-up.  The City will continue to follow its yard waste limits of collecting 3 bags and 3 bundles per residence per week.
     

  3. Take biodegradable paper bagged leaves to 560 Barks Rd. W.

    Park Enterprise Construction located at 560 Barks Rd. W. is the location of the City’s free drop off site.  This location will be open to city residents free of charge.  Residents may call 223-7275 for Park Enterprise hours of operation.  Proof of city residency is required.  PLEASE NOTE:  If non-biodegradable bags are used, leaves must be emptied from the bag at site.
