The City of Turlock’s annual leaf pickup program ended Feb. 9. Leaves should no longer be placed in the street and should be disposed of in the green cart provided by Turlock Scavenger.
Leaves and debris deposited into the gutter begin to collect in and around the storm drain, restricting the flow of water as well as causing flooding of streets and storm water pollution when it rains. While leaf blowers make the job much easier and quicker, be sure to blow the leaves and debris into a pile and dispose of them in your green cart. Do not blow leaves and lawn clippings into the middle of the road. Composting, bagging, or mulching yard debris is the best practice for water quality and the environment. Bagged yard waste should be placed in the green organics cart provided by Turlock Scavenger.
For more information regarding waste disposal services, contact Turlock Scavenger and Recycling Company at (209) 668-7274 or the City of Turlock’s Municipal Services Department at (209) 668-5590. Brought to you by the City of Turlock Municipal Services Department.
