WESTFIELD - Leaf pickup in the Village of Westfield begins on Monday, Oct. 22 in Area 1 and will proceed with Area 2 on Tuesday, Oct. 23, Area 3 on Wednesday, Oct. 24, Area 4 on Thursday, Oct. 25 and Area 5 on Friday, Oct. 26
This pattern - Area 1 on Mondays, Area 2 on Tuesdays, etc. - will continue until Friday, Nov. 16 or until snow obstructs the pickup.
Pick up begins at 7 a.m. If an area is not completed that day, it will be completed the following pick up day before moving to the next area. Return trips will not be made until all areas of the Village have been completed. The first two weeks of the schedule are followed very closely, until the weather, amount of leaves to be picked up increases and mechanical breakdown start to occur, which will then force delays in the schedule.
Leaf collection will begin in the Village of Westfield on Monday, Oct. 2 and be picked up Monday through Friday by Areas 1 through 5.
Residents are asked to rake leaves to the curb line, but not in the gutters. As the suction machine requires clearance, care should be taken in not placing leaves under low hanging limbs or power lines. Tree limbs and other debris should not be placed in the leaves. Such action will cause the leaves to be left and a return trip will not be made.
Anyone wishing leaves should call 326-3477.
