Due to weather conditions, the Street Department will continue curbside yard and leaf collection through the end of November. The final collection will be Wednesday November 29th. Yard waste and leaves must be placed for collection curbside in open containers.  Containers must be curbside on Wednesday but due to volume, may not be picked up until Thursday or Friday. However, once the truck collects the street it will not return so do not place anything out after the pickup collection has done your street. Thank you!
