What is the number I call with the city to find out about leaf disposal?
The city's Solid Waste Services manages leaf disposal. For questions, the number to call is 832-3022. The city picks up yard waste, including grass and leaves, every Monday starting at 6 a.m. Yard waste, which is not to be set out with trash, may be left curbside and will be picked up as long as it is in a compostable paper bag or a garbage can or cart. Plastic bags may not be used. Pickup service ends Dec. 24 and will resume again March 3, depending on weather conditions. More information, including details on discounted compost bins available through the city, can be found on the city's Web site at www.lawrencerecycles.org/solidwaste.shtml.
