Irvington News: Got leaves? Want more?
Some Irvington residents are giving thanks for… leaves! We’ve had a tremendous response to our “Love ’Em and Leave ’Em” campaign—in fact, some Village residents have even asked if they can get MORE leaves than they have on their own property! To which the answer is, YES! If you, too, appreciate the value of leaves for compost, and would like the Village to deliver some to you instead of trucking them away, here’s what to do: Identify a location on your property near the street, which would be accessible by a large dump truck (including clearance for the truck to raise its dumper far away from any overhead wires or branches). Mark the location clearly with a traffic cone or a sign. Call the DPW at 591-6044 or email Greg Nilsson at email@example.com. Your request should include the following: your name, address, and a description of the accessible location; the approximate volume of leaves you want; and any restrictions about when the leaves can or can’t be delivered. The DPW will arrange to deliver the leaves when they are regularly scheduled to work in your neighborhood. Please note that these leaves are provided "as is" - as collected from piles along Irvington's streets. There may be twigs and other debris mixed in unavoidably. Happy composting! Weekend Highlights:
