Leave the leaves

By Pat Sunderland


The City of Delta has wrapped up fall cleanup, but Steve Glammeyer, public works director, says city crews will continue to pick up bags of leaves that are left where you would normally place your trash receptacle.

The annual fall cleanup netted 75.73 tons of junk, requiring 70 trips to the landfill. The city's cost was $821.50 with offsetting credits from the county. Last year, the city picked up 71.39 tons of trash and made 66 trips to the Adobe Buttes Landfill. City staff and council agree the service should be continued in 2016.
