Van Buren’s yard waste department will provide curbside pickup for bagged leaves within the city limits from Nov. 25 through Dec. 31.

Bags of leaves with trash or limbs will not be picked up.

Other yard waste and loose leaves may be taken to the Van Buren yard waste facility of Arkansas 59 South. The Municipal Utilities operated compost facility is open from 8 a.m. to noon on Wednesday and Saturdays.

Loose leaves and yard waste should not be placed in the streets or drainage ditches, which may results in clogged drainage systems and possible fines.

Year-round curbside pickup of limbs six inches in diameter and smaller is available by calling 471-5009. Inquiries about leaf pickup also should be made by calling 471-5009.
