The leaf collection in town is not only sloppy and messy but a safety hazard as well. Sidewalks are blocked and clogged forcing pedestrians onto dangerous roadways with no room for error. There is no parking due to piles of leaves sitting on the curb for weeks on end.
It’s a danger to park on the leaves as it can burn up and ruin the car as well.
The kids play in the piles left on the roadways putting themselves and drivers in great danger for they can not be seen.
The solution should be to either let the leaves stay were they fall and not blow them out to the roadway or have them bagged in biodegradable bags they can be recycled in the landfills and yes, we can also avoid traffic all over town by the leaf pick up crews and save some tax money too, by only collecting the bags.
