If you're wanting to keep your lawn tidy this summer, it's probably best to get all that yard work done early in the morning to avoid that hot summer sun. With a forecasted high of 100 degrees this Saturday, August 4, you'll have to get outside extra early to catch the coolest part of the day and work safely.
After you've finished the mowing, hedging, and clipping, head over to 1792 Ottinger Road on Saturday to get rid of that "green" yard waste. Bag up your grass clippings, leaves, branches, and brush and drop it off for free at the city's designated site. Hours are from 8 a.m. to noon and proof of residency is required, so don't forget a driver's license or water bill. All materials collected will be composted and then reused in the city parks.
