• Wednesday, May 2, on streets west of Madison Avenue;

To ensure storm drain systems do not become plugged with leaves and brush, the Skowhegan Public Works Department will pick up leaves on all streets that have curbing and storm drainage systems.

Residents of the affected streets should separate leaves and brush and rake it to the edge of the road, but not so far as to impede traffic. Residents also can dispose of leaves by taking them to the town’s Transfer Station facility, 29 Transfer Station Drive, for composting.

Public works will continue to pick up leaves and brush as scheduled as long as the weather permits.
