City of Sheboygan residents can start to leave leaf piles in the curb for pick-up by the Sheboygan Public Works Department.
Superintendent of Streets and Sanitation Jason Blasiola says residents must follow their map that splits up Sheboygan into sections designation which areas will have leaves picked up that day. The typical week will see street crews picking up leaves from south to north as the week progresses.
Blasiola says anyone leaving leaves should make sure there is space between the curb line or block catch basins so that water can still flow, and also keep piles from getting to high to block the vision of drivers and pedestrians. Also, the city does not want branches, sod and general yard waste with the leaves since this will clog their machines.
Blasiola says residents can do their own leaf removal, by bagging up leaves and taking them to the city’s drop off site Monday through Saturday.
Blasiola also recommends people can mulch their leaves when mowing, giving their lawn a natural fertilizer.
