SPRING YARD DEBRIS REMOVAL PROGRAM
We have received some complaints of abandoned yard debris on dead-end streets, parks, and/or other neighbors’ properties. Please read all of the details in this email to clarify any requirements of this program.
Residents may place yard debris between the sidewalk and curb for City removal. Please place all leaves and other suitable debris in paper bags. Properties with bagged leaves will be serviced first, whenever operationally possible. Please note we will not collect debris on private property, near parked cars, or in plastic bags. Debris must be no longer than 4 feet and not more than 6 inches in diameter. No construction debris, wood, plastic, garbage, glass, furniture, etc.
For example, the end of Denton Avenue, Grant Ave, and William Street have had some abandoned debris picked up recently and in the spirit of everyone doing their part, please put your debris on your property.
Our DPW crew has been out making rounds around the city to pick up curbside debris. They started on Monday, April 22nd and hit every street and then will be back out soon to do another loop around to all of the streets in the city.
“IF IT DIDN’T GROW IN YOUR YARD, WE WON’T PICK IT UP”
Please be advised that residents are encouraged to bring debris to the Doran Avenue Transfer Station when able. The Transfer Station is open Monday thru Friday from 8:00am to 3:00pm with Saturday hours 8:00am to Noon on the following Saturdays:
As a reminder, leaf bags are available in the Fall, not the Spring for debris clean-up.
Please call 315-789-3101 if you have any questions.
