YARD WASTE COLLECTION

The collection of yard waste will resume on April 7th and will continue every Monday (except holidays) until late fall.  Please remember no plastic bags-only brown bags and open containers.  Branches must be bundled and tied in 4 foot lengths.  The leafer will be out on the streets soon to assist in spring clean-up.  Please be on the lookout for signs indicating when the leafer will be in your neighborhood.  Remember to place leaves at the curb, not in bags and not blocking storm drains.
