The City of Minonk will be initiating the residential leaf pick up process starting November 5th, focusing first on getting the streets cleaned up prior to residential piles ready for pick up. We will continue to pick leaves up the week of November 11th, as weather and time permit. The east side of Chestnut St. will be done before moving to the west side of Chestnut St. There are still a number of leaves that need to fall, so your patience will be greatly appreciated as we work through this process. The following rules must be adhered to in order for leaves to be picked up:
- Leaves only – keep piles of brush separate from the leaves.
- Leaves must be placed at the edge of your property within 3 feet of the street or pushed into the street for easier pick up.
- DO NOT place leaves on gravel drives or parking areas. If placed on gravel they will not be picked up.
- DO NOT mow grass clippings/leaves into the street for pick up.
