Where there’s trees there’s leaves and as the original Tree City we got a lot of trees and that means lots of leaves. The good news is our City crews are working overtime collecting them but if you’re a homeowner who likes to rake and take your own leaves over to the City Yard Waste site at Plum Creek Park you need to know that this Wednesday we’ll have a tub grinder on the site grinding this years leaves down to become next year’s mulch so the site will be temporarily closed to the public. We hate to do it but it’s just not safe to keep it open while the grinder is there working. Here’s the scoop from the Kent Public Service Department.
