Leaf pick-up begins Monday
COEUR d'ALENE - Just a raking reminder.
Monday marks the start of the city of Coeur d'Alene's annual leaf pick-up program.
Some tips to help with the process:
• Rake leaves and pine needles about one foot away from the gutter or curb line to allow for water drainage.
• Don't bag the leaves or mix branches or other debris in the piles.
• Crews and equipment are limited, so leaves will be picked up only once. Please don't put leaves in the street after city crews have completed your area. Do not include bagged leaves, branches, rubble, or refuse.
Due to weather conditions, equipment malfunctions, and unforeseen circumstances, city crews are unable to provide a precise schedule of when leaf pick-up will take place.
Pick-up will start south of Sherman Avenue and move north. Completion is expected by Wednesday, Nov. 24.
