Weather permitting, the Osage Beach Annual Leaf Pick Up will begin Monday, Nov. 5.
This year, the City has two machines. The Street Department will start one on Lazy Days Rd (54-62) working east and the other machine will start on Jeffries Road working west until they meet in the middle. Jeffries Rd residents will need to have their leaves raked to the side of the road on Nov. 5as well.
Barring emergencies or inclement weather, the Street Department will then move to the east side of Osage Beach sometime the following week.
Residents on city-owned streets can either rake their leaves to the curb or buy bio-degradable bags to fill and place at the curb for truck pick up. Residents on privately-owned streets within city limits can have their leaves removed only if they are placed in bio-degradable bags and placed at the curb.
Bio-degradable bags can be purchased at local lawn and garden suppliers. Leaves bagged in regular plastic trash bags will not be picked up by Public Works. Only bio-degradable bags with leaves will be taken.
The city urges residents to be patient as we are picking up leaves for the entire community.
