Winter weather battles leaf pickup

Mother Nature is undefeated when it comes to local public works departments battling snow and leaf collection deadlines. Door and Kewaunee Counties have received three measurable snowfalls already this fall, challenging November snow records before the halfway point of the month. Some communities have had to bounce back and forth with their equipment making sure they are properly outfitted for either leaf collection or snow removal. Algoma Public Works Director Matt Murphy says at some point, you have to know when to say when.

Algoma will continue to do curbside leaf pick up until Thursday before getting all of their trucks ready for the winter. Sturgeon Bay Municipal Services Director Mike Barker says they have yet to get through one complete run-through of the city with its leaf collection, something it likes to do at least twice before the season is done. He expects the city will be done by the beginning of December. Leaf collection schedules vary from community to community while compost dumping sites also remain an option.
