Tuesday, December 21

Due to the extended period of rain, the City of Indian Hills has scheduled an extra pickup of the leaves which fell extremely late this year. This will be the final pickup of yard waste until March 1, 2005.

Rumpke will also have a pickup on January 11, 2005, for those of you who have live Christmas trees. Be sure to have your trees at the curb for that one-time tree pickup.
