LOOSE LEAF COLLECTION March thru Mid-October, 2011 The City of Eden’s annual loose-leaf collections of grass clippings and leaves began in March and will run through mid- October 2011. This collection will be carried out on your individual garbage collection routes. GARBAGE COLLECTION DAY LEAF COLLECTION DAY MONDAY COLLECTIONS TUESDAY COLLECTIONS WEDNESDAY COLLECTIONS THURSDAY COLLECTIONS FRIDAY COLLECTIONS WILL REMAIN THE SAME WILL REMAIN THE SAME WILL REMAIN THE SAME WILL REMAIN THE SAME WILL REMAIN THE SAME Leaves and /or grass clippings must be at curbside by 7:00 A.M. on your collection day. Leaves and/or grass for collection should not be placed in the traveled portion of the roadway where traffic would be impeded. Place leaves and/or grass clippings at a location away from any objects such as parked cars, low hanging tree limbs, catch basins, or drainpipes. It is important that leaves and/or grass clippings are not placed in the actual ditch-line or in the curb and gutter area in front of your home to prevent potential flooding of the streets that could be created by the practices listed above. Sticks, rock, brick, or any foreign type objects should be kept out of the leaves and/or grass clippings for pick-up as these type objects delay the collection process and can cause severe damage to the collection equipment. Residents are encouraged to retain leaves and/or grass clippings on their property and compost when possible by implementing a “backyard composting project.” Residents wanting leaves for gardening purposes should contact the City of Eden’s Street Division for information on signing up for delivery of leaves by the truck load. For additional information regarding leaf and/or grass clippings collection services, contact Rodney Carter, Supt., Solid Waste Division at 627-7783 ext. 104, or The Environmental Services Department at 623-2110, Option 4.
