Final Knox Spring Leaf Pick Up Starts Monday

News Release From Mayor Rick ChambersIf your weekend plans include yard work, you may be in luck if you live within the Knox city limits.

The final spring leaf pick up of the year will take place Monday, May 5 through Friday, May 9. Residents should place leaves in the street along the curb and not in the alley. Brush and limbs will be picked up each Thursday by the Knox street department. However, debris left over from professional tree trimming or removal jobs will not be taken by the city. The tree company is responsible for disposing of them.

Knox residents can drop off grass clippings, leaves, fruits and vegetables at the city composting site any time. It’s located at the north end of Shield Street behind city hall.
