Loose leaf collection will continue in the City of Jackson throughout the winter and into the spring when the weather permits.
To help speed up the process, the Department of Public Works (DPW) will be using other collection methods in addition to the leaf vacuums.
Residents can still expect to see DPW crews in neighborhoods in the coming months using the leaf vacuums and loading loose leaves onto trailers.
As of Tuesday, Jan. 14, leaf collection is about 50 percent complete, with crews ready to move north into Section 6, which is the northeast side of the City.
Once collection in Section 6 is completed, crews will move west through sections 7, 8, 9 and 10.
The DPW is dedicated to making sure leaves are collected all over the City.
Thank you for your patience with this new leaf collection program.
