MOUNT VERNON — With the arrival of more typical fall weather, trees are finally shedding their leaves and the city will resume regular leaf pick-ups Monday, Street Superintendent Tom Hinkle reported at the mayor’s weekly press briefing.
Hinkle said three machines will be operating: Two will start on the main streets, then proceed to the side streets and outlying areas. The third will start on the side streets.
Rake your leaves to the curb, but not into the street.
Also, the drop-off area for loose leaves remains open and is inside the west entrance to Ariel-Foundation Park off Harcourt Road. Bags and other containers must be removed from the area after they are emptied.
