2016 Mount Vernon Police Annual Police Report

 

BRUSH PICK UP BEGINS

Starting the week of March 27th brush pick up will begin. Place your brush by the curb. Examples of brush are tree limbs and bushes that have been removed. Clippings, leaves and garden waste are yard waste and not brush. Please put your yard waste in your yard waste cans and put out with your garbage on your garbage day. Brush pick up is on a schedule and picked up starting the 4th Mondays of the Month. In that week you have a scheduled day for pick up- Monday the NW side is collected. Tuesday the NE side is collected. Wednesday the SW side is collected. Thursday the SE side is collected. Make sure your brush is by the curb before 7 a.m. on your collection day. Brush is chipped up and used as free mulch to Mount Vernon residents. Recycle/Reuse Mount Vernon!
 
  LEAF PICK UP BEGINS 
 
There are three weeks of leaf pick up in the Spring. Starting April 3rd, 2017 leaf pick up will begin. Leaves must be by the curb and free of debris. Do not place leaves under trees or around sign posts. This could make it so the leaf truck cannot reach the leaves. Do not place leaves in the street. Have the leaves out by the curb by the Monday of each week for pick up. Leaf pick up is often dictated by mother nature and so be patient and you will be picked up.
