City Will Pick Up Leaves Beginning Monday, Dec. 5

The City of Ava will be picking up leaves during the week of Dec. 5-9, but only if they are bagged and placed at the curb.

Leaves will be picked up on the east side of the city (east of Jefferson Street) on Monday and Tuesday while the west side will be picked up on Wednesday and Thursday. Leaves should be at the curb by 7 a.m. on the appropriate dates to be picked up. There will be no “call backs.”

Since this will be going to a compost area, only leaves and garden waste will be picked up. Bags with other materials mixed in with the leaves and garden waste will not be taken.

Containers other than plastic bags will not be taken. Bags containing rocks, paper, sticks, cans, household waste or other materials will not be picked up.
