The City's Environmental Services Department will continue to pick up leaves bagged in biodegradable paper bags through Dec. 16, 2011. Biodegradable brown paper bags can be purchased at several stores in the Rolla area.
These bags should be out to the curb by 6 a.m. on your normal trash collection day. The department will resume regular collection of yard waste March 1, 2012.
The compost site, located at the north end of McCutchen Road near the Rolla Recycling Center (2141 Old St. James Road), will remain open during normal operating hours for anyone wanting to haul yard waste to that site.
