Leaf Pick-Up will begin October 24th through December 13th 2014.

NEW THIS YEAR: PICKUP WILL BE ON FRIDAY and SATURDAY. Place your bags curbside by Thursday. NO PICKUP on FRIDAY NOVEMBER 28th or SATURDAY NOVEMBER 29th (Thanksgiving Weekend)


Acceptable bags are made of heavy kraft type paper which are clearly labeled BIODEGRADABLE or COMPOSTABLE. Any size bag is acceptable.

Please be aware “Recyclable” bags are NOT biodegradable. If you do not wish to use biodegradable bags, you will have to use a lawn service to dispose of your leaves.  The EPA is very strict on how yard waste is disposed. The stringent guidelines have driven up the cost of disposal.  In an effort to protect our environment and our tax dollars, we believe this is our best option.

If you have any questions, you can contact the Administration Office at (330)856-2340.
