New leaf truck, leaf season pick up schedule set for Cape Girardeau | Home & Garden
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - The City of Cape Girardeau has bought a new automated leaf truck they say will allow them to pick up leaves more frequently and use fewer personnel and equipment.
According to the city, this year's leaf season pickup will start Nov. 5 and end March 29. They say the automated leaf truck will travel every residential street in Cape Girardeau picking up leaves that have been raked to the curb.
When every street has been covered, the city says they will start the route over again. They say you can rake your leaves to the curb as many times as you wish during the season. There is no formal zone plan or need to schedule a pickup.
Residents have several options for leaf removal: curbside collection, Wednesday special pickup, free drop off and composting.
The city says you can refer to the Leaf Pick Up Brochure that will be mailed to all Cape Girardeau residential customers for more information.
