GO AHEAD AND MAKE A BIG PILE: But only to jump in them because the city isn't picking them up.

Here’s an excuse for you to further put-off raking your leaves.

LITTLE ROCK – The City of Little Rock Public Works Department has suspended yard waste collections today, Jan. 11. The suspension is because of a shortage of trucks, with available trucks being used to cover garbage routes. The City’s Fleet Services Department is working to get additional trucks back on the road as soon as possible once repairs are made. The City will update residents when the normal yard waste pickup schedule resumes and will provide notice of when delayed routes will be covered.
