Leaf pickup will begin Nov. 5 for Norwalk residents.

City officials have divided the city into quarters and believe it will take about a week to complete pickup for each section.

If pickup is completed in less than a week, city workers will move on to the next scheduled section, but will go back to the scheduled quadrant at the beginning of the next week.

Nov. 5 will begin pickup for northwest quadrant 1 west of Whittlesey and from West Main Street north, including both sides of West Main.

The second week, beginning Nov. 12, will be pickup for the southeast quadrant 2 south of East Main and from Benedict Avenue east, including both sides of Benedict.

Week three, beginning Nov. 19, will be pickup for the northeast quadrant 3 East Main Street north and from Whittlesey Ave. east

Week four, beginning Nov. 26, will be pickup for the southwest quadrant 4 south of Main St. and west of Benedict.

Officials warned that this schedule could be delayed by bad weather.

They also plan a second pickup for the entire city to make sure all leaves are removed.

Leaves should not be left on the street or the sidewalk. Police officers may cite residents who spread leaves over the sidewalk or street.

Leaves should be piled in the yard near the sidewalk, but residents should not pile leaves around telephone poles, sign posts or guide wires.

In addition, leaves may be bagged.

City officials also ask that residents not park on the street when leaf pickup is scheduled for their area.
