City's yard waste cleanup service starts Monday


So, you've raked and mowed your lawn. It's turning green, and everything looks nice. That is, everything, but the bags of dead leaves and grass clippings you seem to have accumulated, right?

Well, not to worry. Starting Monday, Farmington residents can have those bags picked up and hauled off through the city's curbside yard waste collection program.
