The Newcomerstown Street Department has scheduled the fall leaf pick-up starting Oct. 19.
The village is asking for all residents for their cooperation. The pick-up process will follow last year's same order for leaf pick-up.
Leaves are to be raked into the street on your assigned day (the night before the scheduled day). The leaves are to be raked no less than one foot from the curb so that the storm sewer drains can still drain.
Pick-up will begin each day at 7 a.m. (pick-up crews will only pass by one time on the scheduled day). The department requests that no brush or other debris be placed in the leaves. If brush or other debris is noted, the leaves at that residence will not be picked up. The pickup schedule is as follows: Mondays/Section 1: From River Street, west to the corporation limit, then south of the railroad tracks; Tuesdays/Section 2: From River Street, east to the corporation limit, then south of the railroad tracks; Wednesdays/Section 3: From Bridge Street, east to Pilling Street, then north of the railroad tracks. This includes the Scott Addition; and Thursdays/Section 4: From Bridge Street, west to the corporation limit, then north of the railroad tracks.
For questions, call 488-8655. Messages will be returned as soon as possible.
