Leaf and limb pickup
If you live in the Athens area, how do you get rid of your leaf and limb waste? At my house we don't employ a lawn maintenance service, so we depend on Athens-Clarke County's leaf and limb pickup service. However, the service is inconvenient and unreliable because it comes around only once every six or seven weeks, and the scheduled pickup is a one-week window -- plenty of time to kill the grass that the waste sits on while waiting to be picked up. (Most municipal pickup services schedule one certain day for a neighborhood, and they collect more frequently. Our service here is underfunded and inadequate.) I don't have a pickup truck to haul off waste, and I'm not going to buy one because I want a fuel-efficient car as my main vehicle and I have no place to park an extra vehicle. Are there any private companies that will haul off leaf and limb waste cheaply?
