Rockland residents can get rid of those leaves and lawn debris next week.

The city of Rockland will start its annual fall clean-up Monday, Nov. 1.

City public works crews will begin at the Rockport town line and work south during the week, collecting leaves and branches left along the side of the road.The city will be using vacuum trucks to remove raked leaves.

“We ask only that you rake your leaves into piles along the edge of your lawn where it meets the sidewalk or to the edge of your street pavement if your street does not have a sidewalk, so that the vacuum hose can reach the piles to be picked up,” the city stated in a public notice.

The city also said residents can bag leaves, placing them on the lawn, next to the sidewalk edge or street pavement, noting there are people in need of bagged leaves for house banking or garden mulch who drive around looking to pick up bagged leaves before city crews begin their rounds.

Garden debris and brush will also be removed if placed separately, along the edge of the property.

The clean-up will last though November.
