Does the city still vacuum up leaves from the curb or do we need to put them in bags? Just raked a bunch of leaves to the curb after one neighbor told they still do, and now another neighbor just told they stopped. I saw the truck out the other day.
From the city website:
Curbside Leaves and Brush Pick Up
Residents should call the Highway Department at (845) 831-0932 or (845) 838-5028 to be placed on a list for brush pick up. Brush can be no more than 4 inches in diameter and no longer than 6 feet in length. Brush should be placed near the curb and piled all one way. No bulk items allowed at curbside for pick up.
Leaves are collected by the Highway Department curbside in the spring during the month of April and in the fall from the first week of November until the first snowfall. Please place leaves in paper leaf collection bags onlyand place on the curb for pick up.
LEAVES MUST BE PLACED IN BIODEGRADABLE BAGS
PLASTIC BAGS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED
Bags can be taken to the Transfer Station Free of Charge
Any leaves with dirt, rocks, garbage, or branches mixed in will not be picked up!
Any questions call 831-0932
(Monday – Friday 7 am to 3 pm)
the vacuum truck just came by our neighborhood this morning (jordan/ iris circle/ victor rd)
I have been wondering the same thing. I went on city website a week or so ago and it says you need to have your leaves in the bags however the next day, the vacuum was sucking up leaves across the street from me. CONFUSING!! We just bagged ours.
they came by and vacuumed mine too so i put more out yesterday.
