The Sikeston Department of Public Safety says the city is not collecting leaves this year due to repair costs and manpower issues. Public Works Director Jay Lancaster says the leaf collection apparatus and that the six full time workers will be used in other areas. So you are on your own for leaf disposal. Composting and burning are common ways to do so however the DPS reminds you there are in place for those practices. Do not burn anything when the wind is over 10 mph. You may not burn limbs over 2 inches in diameter. You cannot burn any yard debris on any sidewalk, street, alleyway, gutter, drainage ditch or storm drain. Never leave a fire unattended.
