No sooner have the leaves started to turn brilliant colors and just as promptly started to fall when the city of Muskego announced two annual October events: leaf pick up and Trick or Treat hours.
Roadside leaf pick up means just that
Starting the end of October, the Department of Public Works will start collecting leaves that are deposited at the side of the road, with operations starting on the north side of the city. Note that early snowfall could suspend this operation, so the sooner you're able to rake those leaves the better.
However, if you miss them on the first pass, crews will likely return in another week or two. The DPW will finish operations on November 30, and there will be no spring pick up.
No tree branches, garden plants, or vines should be mixed in with the piles, please. In addition, please do not leave the piles in ditches, and piles should not obstruct the roadway. Simply rake up to the edge of the blacktop. In areas where there is curb and gutter, rake leaves to the edge of the curb so as not to obstruct the gutters. Leaves should not be bagged.
Trick or Treat
As has been the case for the past 14 years, Trick or Treat hours are officially from 6 to 8 p.m. on Halloween, Wednesday, Oct. 31. (Certain subdivisions may have separate times or hours for their residents.)
