The annual fall curbside clean-up begins this week in the City of Verona.
Public works staff will begin collecting leaves and yard waste and will continue until the city receives a significant snowfall.
The city sends a large vehicle that scoops leaves from curbsides, so residents are asked to rake leaves in piles as close to the curb as possible for easy collection. Leaves must be in a separate pile.
Yard waste includes grass clippings, leaves, weeds, small twigs, vegetable/plant matter and hay or straw.
Residents can always use the drop-off site at 410 Investment Court to dispose of such material.
The city holds regular brush collection -- for woody material, limbs and stumps placed neatly next to the street -- year-round on the second and fourth full weeks of each month.
