Urbana schedules leaf-collection dates for fall

URBANA — Leaves may not be falling quite yet, but the city of Urbana wants you to mark your calendars for leaf pick-up throughout the fall.

The city will provide leaf collection to all residents for three weeks: Oct. 22-26 and Nov. 5-9 and 26-30.

Residents should place leaves into 30-gallon paper yard-waste bags, which the city will collect before 6 a.m. on residents' U-Cycle collection day. No plastic bags, garbage, tree limbs or brush will be collected.

Residents can also take bagged leaves to the Landscape Recycling Center at 1210 E. University Ave. for a small disposal fee. That location is open year-round.

Anyone seeking more information can call the center at 217-344-5323.
