As fall yard cleanup continues across Norfolk County, residents are reminded to avoid raking or blowing leaves onto the street.
Not only can leaves cause clogged sewer drains and make sidewalks and roadways slippery, but they also hinder the work of street sweepers.
Instead, residents are encouraged to participate in the final weeks of the leaf and yard waste curbside pickup, which wraps up the week of November 23.
This includes those living in the urban areas of Long Point, Simcoe, Port Dover, Langton, Port Rowan, Turkey Point, Vittoria, St. Williams, Courtland, Delhi and Waterford.
Leaf and yard waste in brown paper leaf bags can be placed curbside on the regular collection day.
Residents may also consider mulching leaves directly into their lawn, or composting.
Alternately, residents can bring leaf and yard waste material in yard waste bags or loose in a trailer to the South Walsingham or Simcoe transfer stations free of charge.
