It’s that time of year again: peak foliage. And with peak foliage comes peak-foliage-fallen-on-the-ground, and that’s where you come in. Please make sure to rake your leaves off the sidewalk. When they get wet, they present a hazard, particularly to unstable walkers. Also, if it rains they can get washed into the storm drains, clog them, and cause flooding.
The best place to put the leaves in into the tree boxes. Any day now, DPW will be heading through the neighborhood sucking up all the leaves (they’ll be composted). And it makes it easier for them and is more effective when you pile up the leaves in the tree boxes. Or you can rake them into paper bags and leave those in the tree box.
