SKOWHEGAN — The 2012 annual in-town leaf pick up began Monday on streets between North and Madison avenues. The following schedule will continue as time and weather permit:

* Today, streets east of Main Street

* Friday, streets east of North Avenue

* Monday, streets between Madison and North avenues

* Tuesday, streets west of Main Street

To ensure storm drain systems work properly and do not become plugged with leaves, the Skowhegan Public Works Department will pick up leaves on all streets that have curbing and storm drainage systems. If you live on one of these streets, leaves should be raked out beyond to the edge of the road but not so far as to impede traffic. Residents may also dispose of leaves by taking them to the town’s transfer station facility for composting. For more information, call 474-6911.
