If you have a yard, I hope you planned on getting all your spring cleaning done this weekend. Next week is the last time the Claw will be coming by for months. (See the helpful city chart for details). After next week any piles you put in the street will sit and molder until the first week in May.
Or if someone tosses a cigarette into the pile of dry leaves and sticks it may smolder instead.
Got other plans this weekend? Tough Turkeys. If you don’t do your yard clean up this week, you either need to hire a hauling service, haul the trimmings yourself, or stack them somewhere near your house for the Davis rats to nest in.
This 2 month no Claw experiment the City is performing will be followed by a 5 MONTH claw summer vacation.
It’s not clear what the claw will be doing during its time off. Will it be headed out to see the national parks, possibly front load some sandcastles on the CA beaches? Or will it be a staycation out at the Davis dump? Either way I hope it is rested and ready, because that end of October pick-up could be a real doozy with half a years’ worth of yard waste clogging the streets of Davis.
Good luck Davis City cyclists circumnavigating the promised pile propagation of pokey poles polluting Pole Line.
Who thought having one single pick up of bulky yard waste between the end of February and the middle of October was a good idea? Every member of the Davis City Council except Will Arnold that’s who.
