Fall leaf pick up is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 14th in Knox. Leaves need to be placed in front of your residence next to the curb on the street in a long row, not in the alley. Do not bag the leaves, as the garbage contractors will not pick those up. Remember to keep all trash out of leaf piles so the vacuum can pick up the leaves. Branches and limbs will also be picked up, but they need to be separated from the leaves. City officials note they will not pick up brush left over from professional tree removal jobs, as it is the contractor’s responsibility to clear.
Leaves, grass, garden material and brush can also be dropped off at the compost pile behind city hall. Be sure to remove items from bags or containers before dropping them off.
