Tired of looking at the leaves on your lawn? Starting Monday, you will be able to rake them into the street for the city of Lodi's annual leaf-removal program.

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 piling leaves into the street:

  • Don't park on the street until leaves have been picked up and collection crews have finished. 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 on top of 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 209-369-8274.

Check Lodinews.com and the News-Sentinel every Saturday for updated schedules through mid-January.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
