2012 leaf collection

Once again, the city is offering 3 options for leaf collection this year. Everyone should have received a post card in the mail, but here is a quick run through of the options.

1) Compost your leaves! More information on how to compost can be found at www.epa.gov/composting

2) Bi-weekly yard wast pick up: On our regular yard waste days, bagged leaves will be picked up without the yard waste tag. All other yard waste needs a tag, but leaves don't. Just FYI, we have used garbage cans for leaves with no problems in the past. That saves on the cost of the bags.

3) Curbside pickup: There will be only 1 pickup this year. Just as with last year, you can check where the crews are at http://bloomington.in.gov/leaves. Leaves should be raked to the curb (NOT in the street) by next Monday, November 5, when collection starts. Leaves will be vacuumed between November 5 and December 21.

Looking at the map, our neighborhood is not in the first group for collection, but, if I remember correctly, we were near the start of the pickup last year.
