Free yard waste pick-up service available until Feb. 1

RIPON - The city is still providing free pick-up service for disposal of leaves, trimmings and Christmas trees, until Feb. 1.

Residents should place loose yard trimmings and leaves in the street just outside of the gutter (the gutter needs to remain clear for water runoff). No other solid waste of any kind should be included among the prunigs or leaves. Branches should not be more than 4-feet-long. Do not bag or tie the trimmings.

There's no need to call City Hall to have your trimming picked up. A special Public Works crew will pick it up each week as they check neighborhoods. The workers don't follow a set route, so if the yard trimmings are not picked up one week, they will get picked up the next.
