Public Works Notices for June 2003
Getting Rid of Mosquitoes: You can reduce mosquito annoyance in your yard by eliminating sites around the home that serve as habitat for mosquito larvae. As little as 0.5 inch of water in a discarded tin can will support dozens of mosquitoes. Clean roof gutters and corrugated downspout drainpipes. Flush birdbaths and containers under potted plants twice a week. Properly dispose of used tires. Turn over wading pools, wheelbarrows, pails, and any other object that holds water, including items stored under decks and porches. Drain water from tarps and grill covers.
Tree Limbs: We will pick up tree limbs that are up to 6 inches diameter and up to 5 feet long. These need to be bundled and/or put in a container. Tree limbs are collected as yard waste. Yard waste is leaves, weeds, grass cuttings, and anything biodegradable from your yard. Please do not mix trash and yard waste together.
Bamboo cannot be collected with yard waste. Please put bamboo out on bulky trash days for pick up.
