Fall is here so don't forget that means it's leaf collection season

As the leaves turn and fall off the trees yard work will be picking up so that means there will be bags of leaves to get rid of. Leaf collection season lasts October 25 through January 3, 2022 and there are multiple ways you can have your leaves collected. If you have 5 bags or less they can be picked up on your regularly scheduled trash pick-up day. If you have more than 20 than you will need to call "311" before 6 p.m. Sundays to schedule to have them picked-up.
