Allied Waste is reminding its Alton customers that its yard waste pick-up will be ending for the season at the end of the month. Allied picks up yard waste in the fall and spring, but Allied's Manager of Business Development, Susan Piazza says the contract to do so includes an end date of November 30.
Allied will pick up Christmas trees after the holiday if they are cut in 4-foot sections or less. Leaf burning is allowed on Wednesdays and Saturdays in Alton and Godfrey. Some communities, such as Bethalto, Hartford and Roxana, have prohibited the practice all together, while you can burn any time the sun is up and it's not too windy in East Alton.
