Washington Street Commissioner Ernie Evans reminds Washington residents that with spring clean-up approaching that the city will pick-up twigs, branches and brush left at the street side…if the work is done by the homeowner…but contractors must clean up their own waste. To help Street Department workers, residents are asked to place branches laying in the same direction with smaller ends toward the street or alley. Evans also says that the city completed picking up leaves in February. If residents have leaves or other bagged yard waste they can bring them to the recycling center on Memorial Avenue. If anyone has any questions, Evans says to call the Street Department.
