Village Voice: Some leaf pick up tips and reminders

Leaf Pick Up – Week 1 is complete!

The Village Street Crews have been going strong with leaf pick up over the past week. With week 1 done, here are a few reminders:

• Having your vehicles and refuse containers out of the way have been a great help! Please continue to keep your street as clear as possible.

• Any debris other than leaves in your piles can prevent the crews from being able to pick up leaves. Please make sure there are no branches, limbs, or other non-leaf material, including trash, in your leaf pile.
