The City of Knox is preparing for spring leaf pickup. It will take place April 4th through the 8th and again from May 2nd through the 6th. Residents should place leaves in a long row next to the curb. Do not put them in the alley. Also, keep trash out of the leaf piles so the vacuum can pick them up.
The Knox Street Department will pick up brush and limbs each Thursday. Brush, limbs, leaves, grass and garden material can also be dropped off at the compost pile behind city hall at the corner of Shield and Mound Streets. Items should be removed from bags or other containers before being placed in their designated piles.
The city will not take brush remaining from professional tree removal jobs. Cleanup is the contractor’s responsibility.
