Leaf collection this week

If you’ve tried to put out a bag of weeds and leaves on garbage day lately, you’ll have discovered that yard waste collection has ceased for the year here in New West.

If your leaves are piling up, you’re in luck this week: the city will be collecting them for one week only this month , between Nov. 17-21. (and again for a week in December, from the 15th to19th). The city says to use labeled garbage cans or biodegradable paper bags (gold stars for you!).

Thou shalt not use plastic bags, lest NWEP smite thee.
