Leaf vacuuming service scheduled to end Dec. 21

The Westminster Public Works Department will close its leaf vacuuming service for the fall season on Dec. 21.

The service allows city residents to dispose of leaves by raking them into gutters. Street crews then vacuum the leaves into a truck. The service is provided annually from mid-October to mid-December.

City officials say anyone who has additional leaves to be picked up after Dec. 21 should place them in easily emptied containers or plastic bags with a maximum two-bushel capacity. The leaves should be placed at the curb for collection by Haden Trash
