It’s that time of year again! The City crews will start our annual compostable yard debris cleanup on October 29th. Since the leaves are slow to fall this year, we will start by picking up small brush and limbs. Please place your materials on the grassy area immediately behind the curb. Please do not place them in the street where they can create a traffic hazard.
We will begin picking up leaves as soon as the majority of them have fallen from the trees. We start leaf pickup as early as possible each year to try to get them all collected prior to the first snowfall. We will make additional passes through town to collect material if weather permits. But please get your leaves out by the street as soon as possible.
There will be an announcement on WBCH radio each weekday morning letting citizens know where the City work crews are located and which area they will be covering that day, as well as the tentative area crews will cover the next day.

Radon is a colorless ordorless gas derived from the radioactive decay of the element radium that can find its way into homes through basements, crawl spaces and slab foundations. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. It has been estimated that as many as 10 – 35 percent of homes in the Barry-Eaton Health District have elevated radon levels.
