It’s that time of year again!
The city crews will start our annual compostable yard debris cleanup on Oct. 29. Since the leaves are slow to fall this year, we will start by picking up small brush and limbs. Please place your materials on the grassy area immediately behind the curb. Please do not place them in the street where they can create a traffic hazard.
We will begin picking up leaves as soon as the majority of them have fallen from the trees. We start leaf pickup as early as possible each year to try to get them all collected prior to the first snowfall. We will make additional passes through town to collect material, if weather permits. But please get your leaves out by the street as soon as possible.
There will be an announcement on WBCH radio each weekday morning telling citizens where the work crews are located and the area that will be covered that day, as well as the tentative area crews will cover the next day.
The city's Compostable Materials Site, 1303 West State Road, accepts grass clippings, leaves, flowers, small limbs under 3 inches in diameter, and brush. The materials must come from properties located within the city limits.
