Don’t leave the leaves
The once pretty fall leaves are now brown and falling into yards and streets everywhere. Last month Marion City Council made a push to encourage people to keep leaves out of streets, but the wind has other plans.
Short of chopping down all the trees to get rid of leaves, there are several options for residents looking to remove the pesky plant droppings from their yards and streets alike.
In Marion, interim city administrator Roger Holter said residents can take leaves to the burn pile on S. Third St. There they will be mulched.
Leaves in Hillsboro can be taken to the compost pile on N. Adams St, and in Peabody to a burn pit on Olive St. south of the railroad tracks.
