CURBSIDE LEAF PICKUP
Curbside leaf pickup began on Monday, October 20th. Due to ever changing weather conditions and other unforeseen delays, there will NOT be a set pickup schedule this year. The service department will follow pre-determined routes, and daily notices will be posted on the Wickliffe Service Department Facebook page and on the city website. Please follow these rules to ensure the safety of motorists, service personnel and City equipment:
*Rake leaves to the tree lawn. DO NOT place leave in the street or near a fire hydrant. Residents without tree lawns should place leaves close to, but not in, the street or ditch.
*Branches, twigs, grass clippings and other debris must not be mixed with leaves. This would cause damage to the leaf machines and delay leaf pickup. The decision not to pick up leaf piles contaminated with any of the above items is at the discretion of the Service Director.
*Yard waste other than leaves should be put out for yard waste collection by Kimble on your regular collection day. If you prefer, you may continue to bag your leaves for collection by Kimble.
Halloween trick-or-treat in the City of Wickliffe will be held on Friday, October 31, from 6-8pm.

"READY LAKE COUNTY"
The Lake County Emergency Management Agency and Local Emergency Planning Committee have announced the “Ready Lake County” campaign to motivate residents to take action to be self-prepared for any disaster or emergency. Numerous families would not be prepared if a disaster struck today because they think they can rely on their local emergency services if they need help. In reality, first responders will assist the elderly and people with special needs before they would be able to assist the general public, leaving many individuals and families to be self-sufficient.
Being prepared can prove invaluable to your family’s safety and comfort. www.readylakecounty.com provides easy access to existing agencies and available resources, including advice on which resources are best for different needs.
