In case you didn’t save your brush and leaf collection schedule that was included in the last issue of the Tree City Bulletin, I thought it made sense to share those details again here in the Blog as the leaf and brush collection season is officially underway.
The City of Kent 2010 Fall Brush Collection Program
The 2010 Fall Brush Collection Program will commence Monday, October 4th 2010.
Brush will be collected in the Northeast and Southeast Quadrants of the City
Monday, October 4th to Friday, October 15th 2010
Brush will be collected in the Northwest and Southwest Quadrants of the City
Monday, October 18th to Friday, October 29th 2010
Crews will make only one pass down each street during the scheduled collection period. Please place your brush at the curb prior to the first Monday of your collection period, as there will not be a second pass in your neighborhood. Residents that miss the collection will be responsible to dispose of their brush on their own. It may be taken to the City Yard Waste Transfer Site located on Plum Street near the entrance to Plum Creek Park.
2010 Fall Leaf Collection Program
The 2010 Leaf Collection Program will begin November 1st 2010 and end December 17th 2010. Loose leaves will not be picked up during the Spring of 2011.
Leaf Collection Crews will pick up leaves on a continual basis throughout the scheduled program. The Leaf Collection Truck will travel down each street in your quadrant and will then repeat the same route throughout the scheduled collection period.
If you prefer to bag your leaves, please place them on the curb and call the Service Department at 330-678-8105 to request a bagged leaf pickup. The deadline for bagged leaf pickup requests is Friday, December 17th 2010.
Leaf Drop Off
Residents may take leaves to the Yard Waste Site, located at the entrance to Plum Creek Park. Please remember to empty the bags and take them with you when dropping leaves at the site.
If you have questions regarding either program please call the Service Department at 330-678-8105.
