The Owensboro Sanitation Department will begin vacuum leaf collection on October 20, 2015 and it will run through February 15, 2015. The last week of loose-limb and brush collection for residents will be on their trash-day from the 12th through the 16th of October. Bulk yard waste collection is suspended during leaf season.
Owensboro Sanitation reminds customers to remember:
- Don’t mix limbs, yard waste or trash with leaves;
- Do not wet leaves;
- Rake leaves curbside in the yard – not the street or sidewalk;
- Make leaf piles accessible for sanitation crews by not placing piles next to parked cars, and do not block leaf piles with parked cars;
- Do not cover up obstructions with leaf piles.
