Leaves and yard waste will be collected by Allied Waste on Nov. 10 and 17.

Leaves should be placed in biodegradable bags that can be purchased at local hardware stores. Yard waste should be bundled and cannot exceed 3 inches in diameter and 48 inches in length.

Both should be left curbside the night before the pick-up dates.

Leaves and yard waste can be dropped off at Valley Landfill on Pleasant Valley Road during November. The landfill is open Monday-Friday 6 a.m.-3:30 p.m. The site will be closed on Thanksgiving and all Saturdays except Nov. 24 from 6 a.m.-3 p.m.

Recycling for old curbside recycling bins will begin Wednesday and run through Monday.

Empty recycling bins may be placed in a bin at a gravel parking lot near the municipal public works facility at 4200 Sardis Road. The bins will be accepted between 7 a.m.-3 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on weekends.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
