Sycamore leaf pickup to begin next week

SYCAMORE – The city's leaf pickup program will start Monday, according to public works officials.

Pickup days for the city section south of DeKalb Avenue and east of South Cross Street are scheduled from Monday to Oct. 19, Oct. 29 to Nov. 2, Nov. 12 to 16 and Nov. 26 to 30, according to a news release. The pickup days for the rest of the city are scheduled for Oct. 22 to 26, Nov. 5 to 9, and Nov. 19 to 21.

Public works officials said in the release that they urge residents to rake early and often in case the program comes to an early end upon snowfall. Leaves need to be raked on the parkway as close as possible to the back edge of the street curb, but leaves should not be raked into the street to avoid safety problems with traffic and flooding, the release said.

Between Dec. 1 and 16, leaves can be brought to the public works facility, 475 N. Cross St., and placed in a dumpster. Leaves must be in Kraft paper bags, the release said.
