City officials are asking residents to place leaves in a long row along the side of the street in front of homes. Leaves should not be placed in alleys, and residents are being asked not to bag the leaves. Branches and limbs should be separated from leaves, so they can also be picked up.
Residents are also able to drop off leaves, grass, brush, and garden materials at the city compost pile drop-off area behind City Hall at the corner of Shield and Mound Streets, but they must not be placed in bags or containers.
Additionally, the city won’t pick up brush remaining from professional tree removal jobs, with removal companies being required to get rid of it themselves.
