The New Era - All about Sweet Home since 1929

Leaf pickup program exceeds expectations all the way around


December 5, 2018

CITY WORKERS use a vacuum hose to collect leaves earlier this fall.

The city's new leaf program has been a complete success, according to Public Works Director Greg Springman.

So much so, he said, that the new program won't need any adjustments going into the next year.

This year is the first time that the City of Sweet Home has offered a leaf pickup program. The program started Oct. 1 and will end Dec. 15.

Instead of telling residents to keep fallen leaves out of the streets to keep storm drains clear, the city encouraged residents to put their leaves in the streets, a foot from the curb to allow for drainage, and to call Public Works for pickup.
