Charles City residents planning on yard work this weekend, have important dates to remember for disposal of brush and leaves.
City Administrator Steve Diers has these reminders on behalf of the Street Department.
Residents are asked to place brush with the cut ends facing the street. City crews will make only one round of pickup through town on Monday and will not pick up whole trees.
For leaf pickup, leaves are to be raked into the street 12-18 inches from the curb to prevent storm sewers from becoming clogged. Again, the Street Department will make only one round through town for leaf pickup each week of October 25th and November 15th.
If you miss getting your brush or leaves out in time for pickup, the Shaw Avenue Dumpsite is still open daily for dropoff. Contact the City with questions or for more information.
