Fall cleanup schedules given


Those falling leaves!

You can do something about them in November when the Regional Board of Mayors have their free dump at the Delano Regional Transfer Station, Nov. 14 – 21.

The governing board has set two free dates each year in an effort to help residents get rid of their lawn and garden waste. The other one is in the spring.

The transfer station will allow residents within the garbage district to bring their lawn and garden debris to Delano and discard it without charge.

There are a few regulations, though. It’s yard waste only. Officials ask that you bag leaves and cut any limbs to under six feet long.

Also, all loads must be secured with tarps or straps and ropes. They don’t want a lot of debris scattered between your place and the transfer station.

Here’s the Nov. 14–21 schedule for free dumping: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.; and both Saturdays 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. The transfer station will be closed on Wednesday and Sunday.

Coulee Dam has a different schedule. You can still dump free at the transfer station or take advantage of the town’s free pickup service.

You can rake your leaves, from your front yard only, to the curb and they will be picked up by the town crew. You don’t need to sack them; in fact, they ask you not to.

Coulee Dam’s schedule is for the month of November, and the crew will pick up leaves on the following schedule:

The first week: West Coulee Dam. Week two, Mason City addition – Aspen, Birch, Cedar, Fir, Holly, Pine, Spruce, Civic Way and the west side of Central Drive, from Civic Way south.

Week three: Airport addition – Tilmus, Camas, River Drive, 12th Street, Crest Drive from Central to River Drive, and Central Drive north to Crest.

Week four: Hilltop addition –Tulip, Walnut, Yucca and the east side of Central Drive, from Civic Way south and north to Crest Drive.

Remember, in Coulee Dam, leaves from the front yard only.
