Living in Monroe County, IL you know that the change of colors and falling leaves are an annual sign that fall is here. Your kids may enjoy jumping in large piles of leaves but leaving them on your lawn can be a nuisance and may cause damage to your property. Raking and removal is necessary to promote lawn health and to prevent clogged storm drains.
The good news is that the City of Columbia has contracted with All-Type Tree Service until December 7, 2012 to remove leaves. There will be continuous trips made through the city to vacuum and collect the leaves. If you wish to participate in the removal simply rake your leaves into rows within four feet of the street. Make sure you don’t include grass clippings, branches, limbs or shrubs with the leaves and don’t place them on either the street or sidewalk. Full details for the leaf removal guidelines can be found online via the city’s full press release.
