Leaf pickup in city starts Tuesday

The city of Dunkirk Public Works Department has announced leaf pickup will commence with a city-wide sweep beginning Tuesday.

Leaves can be in bags or barrels or loose at the curb. If leaves are left loose at the curb residents are asked to keep leaves clear of receivers and utility poles and out of the street. If leaves are in bags residents are asked to leave the bags untied.

Leaves in bags or barrels will be picked up first and a crew will follow to pick up the loose leaves. Crews will begin in District C and go on to districts D, A and B.
