FRANKFORT, Ind. (WLFI) - Frankfort residents – better get all the last fallen leaves off your lawn and to the curb this Friday.
With the calendar marking the beginning of winter in just a week, the last day the Frankfort Street Department will collect piles of leaves is Friday, Dec. 14.
Street Superintendent George Belmore says no matter what time of year, you can still bring your bagged leaves to the city's compost pile at the Street Department (905 Burlington Avenue) Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., and also on the first and third Saturdays of each month from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Belmore said the leaf collection this fall was quite a hit.
"We have had a successful leaf collection program this fall and want to extend our appreciation to our residents for partnering with our team," Belmore said. "Everyone helped to ensure curb gutters remained free of leaves so rain water could flow freely to sewer drains and reduced clogged drains that create ponding.
"Sticks were kept out of leaf piles and everyone placed their leaf piles away from parked cars so our vacuums could reach the leaves. We thank everyone for their cooperation."
