The City of Butler has released their guidelines for the proper disposal of leaves this fall.
Starting this Saturday (October 12th), residents can dispose of leaves at a designated area at Memorial Park. Signs will direct users to the area, which will be open from 8am to 2:30pm on weekdays and from 9am to 5pm on weekends through the first week of December.
Officials say that only this area can be used for leaf disposal. Dumping of brush, rubbish, and garbage is prohibited.
Leaf burning will also be permitted this year and a curbside collection service will also be offered. Those who intend to burn on private property must call the Fire Department at 724-283-3100 for instructions. Residents interested in curbside collection should call the Streets Department 724-285-8440 for more information.
