Curbside leaf collection will begin on Monday, October 11. Due to the nature of the collection process, it is difficult to establish exact collection days. Crews will be running continuous routes with one crew working south of the Vermilion River and one crew working north. It is not necessary to contact the City for collection. Residents are asked to pile leaves at the curb line (or edge of street if no curbs). Additionally leaves should be placed away from trees, sign poles, utility poles if possible. Leaves should be free of trash, large limbs, and other objects as these can damage the collection machines. Additional information is available on the City’s website at www.pontiac.org; click on the brush and yard waste link under the Street Department tab. Collection will conclude on December 3, weather permitting.
