(Mankato, MN) – Snowplows were out earlier in the week, but it’s time to take a step back to falling leaves.
Leaf vacuuming services are scheduled to start Monday in Mankato, running through November 20. Leaves will be vacuumed on the day after garbage pickup, or on Monday’s for residents with Friday garbage pickup.
To participate in leaf pickup:
After vacuuming, the leaves are chopped and compacted, then recycled as mulch. Although weather determines the schedule, leaf pick-up generally begins when the majority of leaves are on the ground, and runs for approximately four weeks.
