City of Knox fall leaf pick-up

KNOX — Fall leaf pick-up for the City of Knox will begin Oct. 14. Please place all leaves in front of residence, next to the curb, on the street, in a long row, not in the alley. Please do not bag the leaves, as the garbage contractors will not pick up bagged leaves.
Remember to keep all trash out of leaf piles so the vacuum can pick the leaves up.
Place any branches and limbs separate so they can be picked up also.
• Reminder for those who wish to drop off leaves, grass, garden material, or brush at the city compost pile, please remove leaves and grass from the bags or containers before putting them in the designated area behind City Hall, on the corner of Shield and Mound streets.
Residents are also reminded of the City policy that the City will not take brush remaining from professional tree removal jobs. This material is the responsibility of the removal company.
