The City of Alton’s leaf vacuum truck will not be out sometime later next month; loose leaves raked or blown to the edge of the street will not be collected at this time. The Street Department are finishing up the paving/resurfacing street jobs for this year while the weather holds out. The schedule for the leaf vacuum truck will be posted on the City’s website and social media pages, as well as reported to the Telegraph, the Advantage News and to WBGZ radio. The schedule typically goes by ward, concentrating heavily on the areas of town that the sanitary and storm sewers are combined.
Our trash provider, Republic Service, picks up yard waste weekly on the regular trash day through the last week of November, they ask the leaves be in bags or containers marked with an X. Otherwise, residents are allowed to burn the leaves, Wednesday and Saturdays from 10:00 am through 6:00 pm through the end of December.
