Leaf pickup enters second round
The City of Neosho’s free leaf collection program started over again on Wednesday, though expected inclement weather may temporarily interrupt the service.
This will be the start of the second complete pass through the city, as Neosho Public Works employees collect leaves that residents have left by the curb. It is a free service to the citizens of Neosho. Please allow up to two weeks for work crews to arrive in your neighborhood. After this pass is completed, leaf pick up will be upon request.
Public Works crews are starting on the east side of the city. However, projected winter weather may temporarily halt the service until the weather clears.
City residents are asked to please get their leaves out by the curb as soon as possible, and not rake leaves into the street. The city will not accept mulched leaves.
Additionally, please take note of the following:
The City of Neosho would like to thank citizens for their cooperation during the program cycle. For more information, please call Neosho Public Works at 451-8071.
