City to begin curbside vacuum leaf collection

Published 9:58 am Monday, November 4, 2019

The City of Elizabethton Street and Sanitation Department will begin curbside vacuum leaf collection on Monday, Nov. 4, and continue through January 31, 2020 or until all leaves are collected. The entire city should be covered by December 1. The second round should be completed by January 1, 2020 with the final clean up completed by January 31, 2020. Leaves are to be raked in piles or windrows and should be placed at curbside only. The placing of leaves in public streets, gutters, or over storm drains is expressly prohibited. We ask for your patience during the period, as crews will be servicing each area as soon as possible. For those citizens who only generate only a small amount of leaves and wish to bag them, the Sanitation Crews will collect the bags on their regular garbage collection day providing they are placed curbside with the garbage container(s). We sincerely ask for your cooperation during the leaf collection period so that the process may be accomplished as efficiently as possible.
