Swanton leaf collection begins next week


Leaf collection will begin next week in the Village of Swanton. Pick up starts Oct. 24 and is slated to run through the middle of December.

Areas north of the railroad tracks and west of Main Street will be picked up on Mondays. Areas north of the tracks and east of Main Street will be collected on Tuesdays.

Areas south of the tracks and west of Main Street will be picked up on Wednesdays. And, areas south of the railroad tracks and east of Main Street will be collected on Thursdays.

The days of collections may be impacted by holidays, weather, events, breakdowns and day to day operations.

Residents are asked to place leaves in the tree lawn for collection, not in the street. Leaves placed in the street can be hazardous to drivers, can block drainage and become wet and matted after rain, which can slow the collection process.

Do not mix grass, sticks, or brush with leaves.
