When is branch pick-up available?Branch pick-up starts on the first Monday of April and runs through the last weekday in October. Branches should be placed on the parkway (branches must be less than 3” in diameter) and Public Works will remove them.
When is leaf pick-up available and what do we have to do to have them picked up?The leaf pick-up program runs from October through December (dates TBA annually). In order for Public Works to pick-up leaves, you must rake them onto the parkway in the front of your residence. Do not rake the leaves into the street as they will not be picked up and could cause sewer back up and overflow. Also, please do not place any branches, sticks, etc. in the leaf piles. Public Works will come around on a continuous cycle so please allow several days for pick-up.
What are the details of the snow removal program for senior citizens and disabled individuals?Countryside senior citizens and disabled persons are eligible to have the bottom of their driveways plowed after a snowfall by the Department of Public Works. Citizens need to call into the City Clerk’s office annually to be placed on the snow removal list. If you do not call you will not have your snow removed. After Public Works finishes plowing all of the City property, they will then come around and start to plow the ends of the driveways for everyone on the list. Please contact the Clerk’s Office with any further questions.
