To clear the piles of brush, grass, and leaves that have accumulated due to recent weather and city equipment challenges the city will start the following brush and leaf pick up schedule immediately. The goal of this change is to increase the efficiency of the pickup and enable the entire scheduled area to be cleared of the pickup material on its scheduled day each week. The routes and days will not change; however, the crews will concentrate on brush or leaves only during each week:
From May 1st through May 5th crews will be picking up leaves only
From May 8th through May 12th crews will be picking up brush only
From May 15th through May 19th crews will be picking up leaves only
From May 22nd through May 26th crews will be picking up brush only
From May 29th through June 2nd crews will be picking up leaves only
The regular pickup days will remain the same. If an area is not completed in a scheduled day, the crew will begin at the point they left off on the next scheduled day for that area. A new truck has been purchased and added to the fleet to enable simultaneous pickups of leaves and brush in each scheduled area to resume approximately late May.
Citizens can assist in the efficiency of the collection by assuring that brush is piled separately from leaves and grass, and that no trash is in the piles. Also, please do not bag leaves and debris.
