Published 11:10 am Tuesday, October 24, 2023
The City of Elizabethton Street and Sanitation Department will begin curbside vacuum leaf collection on Monday, Nov. 6, and continue through January 31, 2024, or until all leaves are collected.
The entire city should be covered by December 1, 2023. The second round should be completed by January 1, 2024, with the final clean up completed by January 31, 2024.
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.
The Elizabethton Street and Sanitation Department asks for the public’s patience during the period, as crews will be servicing each area as soon as possible.
For those citizens who 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).
The department sincerely asks for the public’s cooperation during the leaf collection period so that the process may be accomplished as efficiently as possible.
