JOPLIN, MO.--- Starting Monday, the City of Joplin will pick up leaves that are raked to the curb. This year they will also be collecting leaves from the Silvercreek area. However there are some rules you need to follow so they'll all get picked up.
"We want people to rake their leaves to the curb only. Only leaves, no rocks, no trash. Don't bad we dont want bags, the bags won't go through the vacuum," states Mary Anne Phillips
The leaf collection should take a little over a month.
