News Briefs: Gallery readies for Under 100 art display

The third annual Under 100 art show and sale is set to open at the Lake Country Art Gallery

It’s that time of year when raking leaves is a regular pastime for folks around Lake Country.

And while you work to clear your yard of debris, remember that regular, bi-weekly curbside yard waste collection will soon be coming to an end for another winter.

There are only a few more weeks for the bi-weekly curbside yard waste collection program for this year. All collections will end on Friday, Nov. 30 and won’t start up again until next March.

Fill your yard waste cart with leaves, pine needles, small prunings and wheel it to the curb. Please make sure that the green lid closes and no materials are sticking out of the cart.

Learn more about the curbside collection or your year-round yard waste disposal options at http://www.regionaldistrict.com/services/regional-waste-reduction-office/yard-waste/yard-waste-homepage.aspx
