Leaf pick-up update
Once again fall leaf pick-up has presented us with challenges. The wet weather, late leaf fall, reduced work force and availability of only one leaf truck has slowed our progress. We continue to work as quickly as we can, however, if you are concerned about letting leaves sit on your grass for too long, please feel free to bag them up. The bagged leaves may be taken to the yard waste roll off container at 31 Jones Drive on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 6:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Wednesday, 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p., or Saturday 9:00 a.m. – noon. The facility is closed on Sundays and holidays.
As long as time allows, our crews may be able to collect the bagged leaves. Like regular leaf collection this work is weather and manpower dependent and so no pre-determined schedule can be provided. If the crews can tell the bags contain leaves, they will tear them open and collect the contents.
We regret any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience.
