Leaf Collection In City To Begin November 2

Leaf collection in Jamestown will begin Monday, Nov. 2. Residents are advised to rake leaves to the terrace behind the curb and not into the street. “Please refrain from placing any trash, plastic bags, containers, etc., in leaves,” said Jeffrey Lehman, city public works director. “This is also a reminder that all basketball hoops are to be removed from the right of way.” Week one of leaf collection will begin in the Foote Avenue and Ivy Street area and will move west to Baker Street. Week two will begin in the Baker Street area sweeping north to Washington Street. Week three will begin in the Foote Avenue area sweeping east toward Second Street, and week four will begin in the East Second Street area sweeping south toward Washington Street. All timeframes are estimated due to often uncontrollable circumstances including, but not limited to, weather. No yard waste, brush, hedge trimmings, garden debris or tree branches will be collected. These materials, as well as leaves, can be brought to the BPU Yard Waste Site at 1001 Monroe St. during normal hours of operation on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. through Nov. 14.
