Leaves to be collected should not be placed in the traveled portion of the roadway as traffic would be impeded. Place leaves at a location away from any objects such as parked cars, low hanging tree limbs, power/phone/cable lines, catch basins, or drainpipes. It is important that leaves are not placed in the actual ditch-line to prevent potential flooding caused by such a practice. Sticks, rocks, bricks, or any foreign type objects should be kept out of the leaves for pick-up as these type objects delay the collection process and can cause severe damage to the collection equipment. Residents are encouraged to retain leaves on their property and compost when possible by implementing a “backyard composting project.” Residents wanting leaves for gardening purposes should contact the City of Eden’s Street Division for information on signing up for delivery of leaves by the truck load. For additional information regarding leaf collection services, contact Darren Gatewood, Supt., Street Division at 627-7783 ext. 102, or to Public Works 336-627-7783 ext. 106 or 108.
