Pulaski Leaf Collection Program Leaf Collection will run Monday October 19 to Monday December 14 Leaf collection will be made one time each week starting on Mon- days until entire town is completed. Weather.permitting and barring any unforeseen situations the collection will be consistent. We will be utilizing our Leaf Vacuum to assist our residents with the disposal of leaves. Leaf Vacuum is designed for leaf removal only. Do not place sticks, limbs, or other debris in the leaf pile. These foreign materials may cause damage to the machine and possible injury to City Personnel. Foreign material will cause us to bypass all of your leaves! Placement of the leaves is a key element to the success of the pro- gram. Place the leaves in a row so that they are located within 4 feet of the edge of the pavement. Keep the leaf piles no higher than 3 feet, for safety and visibility. Leaves should be placed and ready for pickup every Monday by 7:30am We intend to collect leaves on every Monday and will do the entire town before we start over again. More days will be added as the workload grows, Please be patient; we will get to your leaves. Rake your leaves to the back of the curb, on the city boulevard. If cars are continuously parked in front of your leaf piles, please place the leaves at the edge of your driveway. Do not place leaves on rocks or graveled areas, road ditches, or on the street, We can pick up leaves that are either dry or wet. If you have problems with the leaves blowing, you can wet them down. Another option is to cover the leaves with a tarp. Do not place leaves in an area where you have previously had a fire. We will not vacuum leaves from this area, because of the potential of smoldering material becoming ignited inside of the Leaf Vacuum. Leaves may also be burned in accordance with the City Ordinances. Copies of the ordinance may be obtained by contacting City Hall. Leaves may also be mulched by utilizing a mulching blade on your lawn mower. Should you have any questions or concerns about this Leaf Collec- tion .Program, please call City Hall at 792-3222.
