Crews from the Bellefontaine City Street Department have begun the annual leaf pickup.
Residents should pile leaves as near as possible to the street but not in the street or curbs or on sidewalks.
Residents should avoid parking in front of piles.
Piles should be free of branches, brush and trash. No bagged leaves will be accepted. The first-round schedule is:
• Nov. 8, 9 and 13, south of Columbus and east of Main;
• Nov. 14 and 15, south of Columbus and west of Main; and
• Nov. 16 and 20, north of Columbus and west of Main.
Starting the week of Oct. 15, crews will be available for early leaf pick up. Contact Street Superintendent Donn Volbrecht by email at email@example.com or by phone at 592-1736.
