The Rocky Mount Public Works Department is offering a final round of loose leaf collection through March 28.
Work crews will begin with the north route and will alternate weekly with the south route until collection service ends. Collection may end earlier if all routes have been completed before March 28.
City officials ask that residents do not rake leaves or yard waste into the curb or street and rake leaves to the curb no later than 7 a.m. Monday morning of the collection week to guarantee removal. Loose leaf collection is for leaves and pine straw only, so all piles must be free of trash, sticks, limbs, bottles, cans and other debris.
City residents should call 467-4906 or visit www.rockymountnc.gov to find out which route covers their residence and the exact dates of service.
