The city will continue its leaf pickup schedule on Monday.
There will be a break from Wednesday until Jan. 2 because the city is shortstaffed during the holidays.
The city is divided into 10 districts for leaf pickup, and it takes about 10 working days to complete a cycle.
Below are some recommendations from city staff for residents as they pile their leaves into the street:
- Don't park on the street until leaves have been picked up. The sweepers start at 4 a.m. and collection crews come through at 6:30 a.m.
- Rake leaves beyond the toe of the gutter. Do not pile leaves above rain gutters, because storm water needs to continue flowing.
- Do not include prunings, lawn clippings, flowers or plastic bags.
Residents are allowed up to three yard and garden waste cans for free.
If you need additional cans, contact Central Valley Waste Services at 369-8274.
You can check the News-Sentinel every Saturday until the leaf pickups end in mid-January for updated schedules.
