City leaf pick-up begins

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Lynn A. Wade/Daily Mail City public works employees Skip Jenkins, who's using the rake; and Patrick Caviness, who's guiding the enormous vacuum hose; pick up leaves along Maple Street in the southwest section of the city of Nevada, Monday, while Corey Brundridge guides the truck along and Allen Frock (not pictured) moves ahead to the next pile. The service is provided each year and is an effort City Manager JD Kehrman says benefits both the city and the residents by getting the debris out of the streets and yards. Twigs, bagged leaves or limbs will not be accepted, and residents are asked to have the leaves raked and piled behind the curb, not in the street. Workers plan to continue picking up leaves in the southwest quadrant of the city and will then move on to the northwest, northeast and southeast quadrants, in that order. The compost site located at 702 S. Jefferson also is available to all city residents for the disposal of waste items including tree limbs, grass clippings and unbagged leaves, Monday through Thursday, 6 a.m.-4 p.m., and the first and third Saturdays of the month, 8 a.m.-noon.
