The City of Greenville Public Works Department employees began vacuuming leaves last week.
Public Works Superintendent Bill Grider told WGEL residents should rake leaves to the edge of the curb or your yard so the city’s vacuum can reach them. Leaves should not be put in ditches or into the roadway. Piles should be no higher than three feet and contain no sticks, brush, or other debris.
