Monday, February 11, 2019 🍂 ONGOING City of Murray Leaf Pick Up
City of Murray 2018 Annual Fall Leaf Pick-up
The Annual Fall Leaf Pickup for the City of Murray will begin on Monday, November 19th, 2018, and will run until completed. Leaf Pickup will begin in the area South of Main Street and West of 12th Street. We will be working our way clockwise through the city. The entire City will be covered twice to ensure that all leaves properly prepared by residents are picked-up.
PLEASE DO NOT RAKE LEAVES INTO THE STREET, STREET GUTTERS, ONTO THE SIDEWALK, OVER WATER METERS, INTO DRAINAGE DITCHES OR MIX WITH BRUSH PILES.
Leaves combined with brush piles WILL NOT be picked up as this poses a serious safety risk to our workers.
Residents may dispose of brush through private lawn/yard services or by transporting it to the Transfer Station. Do not place brush in your residential rollout garbage container. The Sanitation Department will also collect brush by scheduling a “Special Pick-up”.
Residents who place brush within the public right-of-way at any time, except during the Annual Spring Brush Pick-up or for a scheduled Sanitation Department Special Pick-up, are subject to fines and penalties under the Property Maintenance Codes and/or Health and Sanitation Ordinances.
Please contact the Sanitation Department at 762-0380 for Transfer Station requirements regarding brush.
Leaves should be raked two to three feet from the back of the curb or edge of roadway where possible. Again, please do not rake your leaves into the street; onto the sidewalk; or into the drainage areas. Residents who place their leaves in the street or on the sidewalk create serious public safety issues. The resident who places their leaves in the street or on the sidewalk are subject to fines and penalties under the City’s Ordinances and will be responsible for any accidents they might cause. Residents who place their leaves in drainage areas may be responsible for any flooding issues the leaves created.
Bagged leaves must be dropped off at the bagged leaf collection point on Andrus Drive and will not be picked up on the street. Only bagged leaves will be accepted at the leaf collection point.
This is a free service for city residents only, either the vehicle must display a City Sticker or the individual must be able to provide proof of City residency. Lawn and yard service companies will need to dispose of leaves they collect at their own expense.
After the Christmas holidays, Christmas trees will be accepted at the leaf collection point for disposal.
A link will be posted on the City’s website at www.murrayky.gov so that residents may monitor the city’s progress and current location throughout leaf pick-up.
