ASHTABULA - - Leaf pick up has never been easier, or at least never so explained as it is now, thanks to City Manager Anthony Cantagallo.

"I hope this will make leaf pickup much faster," he said, noting the program will begin Oct. 30 and will continue through Dec. 8.

The city will pick up leaves placed in authorized lawn bags on the same day as garbage pick up through Nov. 10. After that, city crews will collect only leaf bags on Nov. 18, 25, and Dec. 2, 9.

Treelawn pickup - - that's loose leaves raked to the treelawn for crews to vacuum - - will be picked up on the following schedule:

- Oct. 30 to Nov. 9 in Ward 1;

- Nov. 13 through Nov. 17 in Ward 3;

- Nov. 20 through Nov. 24 in Ward 5;

- Nov. 27 through Dec. 1 in Ward 4; and

- Dec. 4 through Dec. 8 in Ward 2.

Leaves should not be raked into the street and leaf piles should be free of all debris.
