Leaf collection programs wrapping it up for season.

Byline: The Register-Guard

Alas, all good things must come to an end. Really annoying Mannheim Steamroller carols, Mallomars, Independence Day-themed incendiary devices - they all suddenly surround us in vast abundance ... then they're gone.

This even goes for leaf collection programs.

Lane County public works crews are done, all done. The trusty folks will, however, pick up any missed leaves on a case-by-case basis next week.

Eugene's teams will continue collecting nature's detritus in the west and central parts of the city starting Monday. As has been the case since they began, if you want leaves delivered to your digs, call 682-4800.

Forms are also available at community centers, the library, or on the Web at (click on the leaf link).

Springfield residents who live east of 28th Street will see Sanipac crews pick up their leaves beginning Monday and wrapping up Friday. This is the second and final collection in the city. If you don't remember from the first go-round, bag your leaves and put them on the curb but not in the street.

This is also your last chance to hear the leaf hot lines until next year. Eugene's number is 682-5383, and Springfield's is 726-3637.
