Right before Thanksgiving I raked up about 18 bags full of leaves from our backyard. Our curbside yard waste pickup happens on Thursday mornings. We left town on Wednesday so I didn’t put the leaves out to sit until Friday when they’d finally get around to picking it all up. Then I was sick last week and didn’t take them out. I think there was a week in there as well that I just forgot.
I put the leaves out by the curb last night to be picked up this morning. The leaves are still there. No one is coming to pick them up. I check out the city website and they only pick up yard waste until mid-November. I was probably already too late when I didn’t put them out at Thanksgiving.
So if you want some bags of leaves – they are out by the front of my house – come and help yourself.
