(ORLEANS) – As Spring gets officially underway and the annual Town Wide Clean Upcoming soon Orleans residents are reminded that the Town Street Department is continuing its curbside yard waste pick up for the town’s citizens as a courtesy in keeping the Orleans community a clean and attractive place for everyone.
The town has designated each Tuesday of the month as yard waste collection day, with the exception during said week a holiday falls and the town offices is closed. Pickup will resume the next full week of business.
The Town Crew will collect yard waste (grass clippings, small twigs, garden waste, shrubbery trimmings etc.) which is placed at curb provided they are bagged and/or in a marked container of sorts that does not weigh more than 50 pounds.
Small tree limbs, branches will be collected at curbside if they are reasonably stacked with the base pointing toward the street and only if they have been cut into four-foot lengths and not larger than 3 ” in diameter.
Larger tree limbs, tree stumps, and tree trunks will NOT be collected by the street employees. Residents may take those type of items anytime to the town lake area and placed on the brush pile located there.
For more information or to schedule a pick-up residents may contact the Orleans Town Offices during regular business hours Monday – Friday 812-865-2539 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
