No mixed piles containing lumber, concrete, railroad ties or non-organic materials will be collected. Leaves, small trimmings and other yard waste should be put in containers, paper yard waste bags or bundled for collection by Modern Corporation on a weekly basis. The Highway Department will not pick up these materials during this spring brush pickup.
