BANGOR – Annual leaf collection by Public Works crews will begin Nov. 1 based on existing conditions and areas that have drainage problems.
Leaves left at curbside should be free of debris and should be left on the edge of the roadway and not on sidewalks to facilitate collection. During November, an area will be set aside at the Public Works Compound at 530 Maine Ave. for depositing loose leaves and emptying bagged leaves free of charge. Collected leaves will be composted for use in city parks and other city projects. City parks will not be used as leaf pickup points. Call 992-4510 for information.
