Swanton announces leaf collection schedule


The Village of Swanton has announced that leaf pick up will commence the week of Oct. 26 and run through Dec. 7, weather permitting.

Swanton contracts with Lammon Brothers to collect leaves. This year Lammon Brothers will be collecting leaves by area:

North of railroad tracks and west of Main Street- Monday.

North of railroad tracks and east of Main Street- Tuesday.

South of railroad tracks and west of Main Street- Wednesday.

South of railroad tracks and east of Main Street- Thursday.

All dates are approximate. Holidays, weather, events, breakdowns and day to day operations may cause adjustments to the schedule.

Village officials ask that residents place leaves on the tree lawn for collection, not in the street. Leaves placed in the street can be a hazard to motorist, can block drainage, and become wet and matted after a rain, which can significantly slow the collection process. Do not mix grass, sticks, or brush in with the leaves
