Springfield leaf collection services to begin April 13

Posted:
SPRINGFIELD - Springfield Public Works Department officials have announced that spring leaf collection services will be held on April 13, 2015.

Officials say Springfield residents may participate in these services by placing leaves in brown leaf bags or plastic containers at the end of their driveways or on the curb by 7:00 a.m. on April 13.  Residents must place the leaves inside containers that do not exceed 30 gallons, and do not weigh more than 50 pounds.  Plastic containers must be labeled as "yard waste."

Officials also say that metal cans, overweight containers, plastic bags, and boxes are not proper disposal containers, and will not be picked up.  If your leaves cannot be taken, crews will place a sticker on the bag or container explaining why.

Collection crews will make one pass through each neighborhood.  Items not put out for collection by April 13 will need to be picked up by waste haulers.  Resident can also use the free drop-off service provided by Evans Recycling in order to dispose of leaves.
