If you still have some fall yard work that needs to be done, there is still plenty of time to do so.

The City of Clinton's fall clean up crews are out in full swing right now. Commissioner of Streets and Public Improvements for the City of Clinton, Nan Crang says so far crews have been very busy, and with many trees yet to shed their leaves for the fall season, they are sure to continue to be busy through the month of November.

Crang encourages those who are able to continue to take advantage of the yard waste facility. She says it speeds up the process for the City's Street department clean up.

With the residents that chose to leave their brush out by the street, the time of year leaves a questionable situation as to where exactly to leave that brush. Steve Lobb says with the weather conditions the way they are, he says leaving the brush too far up on residents property creates more work for the street department, making the amount of time they spend in a particular portion of the city longer. He says while leaving brush close to the street may cause some minor flooding, that may be the best case scenario for his crews.

Crang also reminds residents the yard waste facility's hours are Monday through Friday, 3-5 pm, and Saturday from 8 am to 12 pm, 1 pm - 5 pm. and are good until December 3rd. After December 3rd, Crang says the hours then become Tuesday and Thursday 3-5 pm, and Saturday from 8 am to 1 pm, and 1 to 5 pm.

Below is a map of the 5 zones of Clinton's clean up areas. Crang says the City can usually get to one zone per week.
