JAMESTOWN – City Public Works Director Jeff Lehman announces that Phase I of the leaf collection in Jamestown will begin Monday, Nov. 4. 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.
Phase I will begin in the Foote Ave., Martin Road and Linwood Avenue area and move east and north, counter clockwise, to the east side of Washington Street and the Fluvanna Ave. area. Phase II of leaf collection will begin in the Foote Avenue and Ivy Street area and will move west and north, clockwise, to Washington Street. Phase II is estimated to begin Monday, Nov. 18.
No yard waste, brush, hedge trimmings, garden debris or tree branches will be collected. This material, as well as leaves, can be brought to the BPU Yard Waste Site at 1001 Monroe Street during their normal hours of operation on Saturdays from 9 AM to 3 PM through Nov. 9.
The Department of Public Works is looking for local farmers and/or composters who may be interested in obtaining leaves collected this fall. Leaves can be brought directly to those interested or collected at a later date. If interested, please contact the DPW at (716) 483-7545.
