Yard Waste Season Winds Down

If you have leaves and other fall yard waste to get rid of, now is the time to set it out: seasonal yard waste will not be picked up after November 30. 

After that date, the yard waste collection program will be suspended until the spring so crews and equipment can be available for snow plowing and winter road treatment.
