Leaf Removal Update

Despite the snow and unpredictable weather, DPW crews are still working hard to remove the leaves from the streets. This process will take time as the recent snowfall has led to the leaves frozen which impacts how quickly crews can get through town. Residents are encouraged to utilize MMWA's yard waste program to help dispose of their leaves.

As a reminder, MMWA's  yard waste guidelines state that yard waste is defined by state law as grass clippings, sod without dirt, twigs (less than two inches in diameter), leaves, and other yard vegitation. Yard waste is NOT  rootballs, soil stumps, tree trunks, large shrubs, rocks, or bushes.  All yard wast materials must be placed in paper yard waste bags or in 20 gallon or smaller garbage cans with handles that have a "Yard Wast" sticker affixed to the front of the can. Yard waste stickers are available at the City Office. Yard waste season runs from the first week of April through the end of November.

Please note that pumpkins should NOT be placed in the street for pick up. Pumpkins can be placed out with the trash or they may be placed in yard waste bags.
