FRAMINGHAM – The City of Framingham is collecting bags of leaves curbside this week and next week.
In September, the City of Framingham announced the reduction. “Every fall, we typically offer five weeks of curbside leaf collection and two weeks of curbside brush collection,” said Blake Lukis, Director of Public Works in a press release in September. “This reduction in service is attributed to the combination of increased leaf disposal cost and budgetary reductions.”
This year, there is just two weeks of curbside leaf collection.
The 2020 leaf collection budget was reduced from $100,000 to $70,000.
Lukis said budget was cut by the Spicer administration in anticipation of revenue shortfalls due to the coronavirus pandemic.
