[ARCHIVED] Take advantage of weekly yard waste pick-up to keep your lawn from flooding

As both more leaves and more rain fall this autumn, it's important for residents to take some precautions to keep the city's storm water collection system flowing properly.
Residents are responsible for sidewalks and lawn maintenance within road right-of-way abutting residence and business properties. Failure to keep your lawn clear of leaves and other debris can impede the flow of water into storm drains. This could flood your property, as well as your neighbor's property.
A good way to prevent your drain from becoming obstructed is to stay on top of your yard maintenance and properly dispose of your yard waste.
Yard waste is collected by the City's contracted trash service, L&K Trash Services, and is included with regular trash pick-up for most of the year. Yard waste will be picked up weekly through mid-December and must be curbside by 6 a.m. on your regular trash pick-up day.
Only yard waste in compostable, biodegradable bags with tops rolled down is accepted. No construction material, lumber, trash, or foreign material will be accepted.
Trees and limbs must be bundled with rope or twine and weigh less than 50 pounds. Up to 10 bags of yard waste may be picked up during November and December. The weekly limit for the rest of the year is six bags.
