Opinion: Simple solution for my leaves

Dear Editor,

The Owego Pennysaver had an ad that said, “The Town of Owego Highway Department will pick up leaves ONLY beginning Nov., 1, 2019 weather permitting. The town will only accept leaves in biodegradable paper bags. Bags will not be picked up if there is other debris in them. We will not pick up plastic bags or loose leaves. There will be no brush pick up this fall.”

These are my thoughts; if the town of Owego will not pick up my leaves or my brush, I guess the only thing I can do with my leaves and my brush is to put it in a pile in my backyard or along the curb and BURN it!

Thank you Town of Owego for your help!
