1116 leaf collection.jpg

Glasgow Department of Public Works employee James Moss, from left, rakes leaves closer to a vacuuming device Friday on Wilderness Road as co-worker Trevor Napier operates the vacuum tube and fellow employee Jessie Levi reaches to remove a stormwater drainage cover so leaves that have fallen through the slats can be removed as the truck, driven by Ben Nuckols, gradually moves forward. Friday was the last day for the first round in Zone 1, but residents there will have another chance to have their leaves collected in early December as the cycle begins again. There are four zones. "Every year, we pick up close to 300 tons," said foreman Steve Mathews, who added they are trending toward more than that in the first week of leaf collection, which he attributes mostly to more frequent wet weather this year.
