The fall brings with it falling leaves. It is important to remember that there are designated pick up dates that the City will pick up your leaves. Leaves need to be placed in the grassed terrace area between the street and sidewalk. Leaves are not to be placed in the street as this could cause flooding from storm drains becoming clogged by tremendous amounts of leaves being washed down the street.
Pile leaves on the terrace not in the street.
There are also two composting sites that are provided by Manitowoc County where you can dispose of your leaf waste. They are supplied to make disposal of yard wastes convenient. You may also choose to use one of the local providers. The location and hours for the composting sites are as follows:
