CITY NEW BRIEFS: OCTOBER 2010

Month

Clean-Up Green-Up Monday November 29
Posted: Thursday, October 28, 2010

Green vegetation, branches, tree trimmings and limbs up to 6-inches in diameter can be set curbside for pick-up in front of your home the week of Thanksgiving and over the weekend of November 27 & 28.

 

No need to haul your limbs anywhere.

Please set your yard material between the ditch and the street before 7:00am Monday, November 29. Do not tie into bundles. No need to cut into short lengths, long limbs are preferred for chipping. Whenever possible place the cut end of the limbs towards the street for easy pick-up. Don't mix yard material with other trash or wood products - doing so will result in all of the material being left for your disposal.

 It is very important that you place the material near the street
and keep both the street and the ditch clear of all debris.

 A crew will come by with equipment to pick-up and chip your limbs beginning on Monday. Please be aware that it may take a couple days to complete pick-ups throughout the city.
