I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
· The Department of Public Works will begin fall leaf collection on October 1st.
· There is no set day or schedule and it is done based on crew and equipment availability.
· The City cannot guarantee that your leaves will be picked up weekly. Leaf collection will end on November 22nd or the first measurable snowfall, whichever is first. After that time you will have to bag your leaves in a re-usable container or paper bag and pay for a special pick-up or take it to the City’s Drop-off Site for a fee.
•The Department requests that you refrain from piling leaves into piles higher than 1’ above the curb, as the leaf collecting equipment is unable to pick-up large piles. Large piles are also a safety hazard as children like to hide in them.
•Please keep leaf piles a minimum of 10’ away from storm drains to prevent the storm sewer from getting clogged.
•Do not place woody material such as branches in the leaf pile. The crew will have to go around the pile because the equipment is unable to pick it up.
•No containers or bags
Fall Yard Waste Collection – October 28 to November 1
•Plant materials and garden waste can be placed in the curb line with your leaves for this week only.
•Have your yard waste out by that Monday – there is no set schedule.
•Please no bags, boxes, or containers.
•NO trees, branches, or brush. Piles with branches will be skipped as the material collected is taken to a facility that can’t process woody material.
