Brush And Leaf Schedule


Call Before You Dig
The Underground Facility Protection Act, better known as the “One Call Law,” was signed into law in October 1994. This law requires that anyone digging must call 1-800-272-1000 or 811, so that operators can mark out their underground utilities. Anyone digging (schools, police, public safety, public works, municipalities and homeowners) to install, remove or replace trees, tree stumps, curbs, street and signposts, mailbox posts, fences, construct decks, additions, or create new gardens, etc. must call 1-800-272-1000 or 811.
