Is the city yard waste still being picked up on Monday? If you have leaves or something, when’s the best time to put them out?
According to a recent city press release, Dec. 20 was the last day of separate yard trimmings collection for 2010. The yard trimmings program will resume March 7, weather permitting. Residents can place trimmings with regular household trash. But the city’s Waste Reduction and Recycling division recommends using leaves as mulch in the winter or composting leaves in your back yard as an alternative.
