Weather permitting, the Osage Beach Annual Leaf Pick Up will begin Nov. 18. This year, the city will be using two machines which will start on the west end of Osage Beach and work east toward the city limits.
Residents on city-owned streets can either rake their leaves to the curb or purchase biodegradable 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 biodegradable 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.
City officials ask residents to be patient because leaves are being picked up for the entire community. For more information and location updates, call the Department of Public Works at 302-2020.
