New city brush pick-up rules start this week

Courtesy of the City of Clinton — Residents who violate the new city brush pick-up ordinance will receive one of these on the doors of their homes.

CLINTON — City brush pick-up is scheduled for this week, and it also will be the start of the new city ordinance governing the service.

Residents in violation of the ordinance will now receive yellow warning notice cards city workers will hang on residence doors.  The same cards are used to notify residents of a variety of ordinance violations.

Workers will attempt to talk to residents if they are home at the time of service.

“We’re going to give warnings,” said commissioner Kenny Buchanan.  “If anyone has a pile (of brush) that is oversized, we will pick it up this time.  Next time, we will not.”

After the November brush pick-up is completed, city brush pick-up will be suspended through the months of December-February.  Workers still will pick up brush in case of storms during this period.

Buchanan said also that the plan was to resume leaf pick-up this week.  He said there would be at least one city leaf-vac out, with the second added if necessary.

“I want to remind people they need to have leaves on the right-of-ways, not in the street.”

The city will pick up leaves until the end of November.

Buchanan also reported the city’s new alley-maintainer machine had arrived.  He said workers hoped to start on alleys as soon as possible.
