Section 5 hires a private contractor to help with leaf collection each fall. Leaf vacuuming occurs on Mondays beginning mid-October and the final collection is usually late December. There are several things that residents need to remember:
- Please rake leaves just to the edge of the curb, not into the street.
- Please do not place leaves in bags. Take care that limbs, rocks, and any other heavy objects are removed.
- If it rains on our regular vacuuming day, leaves will not be vacuumed that day.
- If there is a very heavy rainstorm, it will take at least TWO days for the wet leaves to dry sufficiently for vacuuming. Wet leaves clog the vacuuming machine.
ALERT: Williams Lane residents must NOT park their cars on the street on Mondays. Due to the narrowness of the street, the leaf machine cannot pass if cars are also present.
