Englewood to begin leaf pickup program

ENGLEWOOD — The Englewood Service Department will begin their annual leaf program on Tuesday, Oct. 15 and continue through Wednesday, Nov. 27. Pickup days will vary however; it is the city’s goal to pick up leaves throughout the whole city at least once a week. The following is a guide to leaf pickup:

• Rake your leaves into the street, approximately 6-inch away from the gutter, to allow rain water to go into the catch basins.

• Leaf pickup creates a fine dust in the air, so plan to wash cars or hang laundry outside after pickup in your area.

• Leaves will not be picked up from under, between or around parked cars.

• Do not put grass clippings, tree branches or brush with your leaves. They clog the vacuum units and will not be picked up.

• Do not try to rake as trucks are going by.

• Bagged leaves will be collected during normal trash pickup.
