Leaf collection safety: Please ensure that children are not playing by the roadway

Date: November 6, 2017

The Ferguson Township Police Department advises residents who are preparing leaves for leaf collection
to ensure that children are not playing in these piles by the roadway. Children who are jumping in leaf piles
may be playing unseen behind them or tunneling inside them. This can pose a danger as vehicles pass on
the roadway. Parents and caregivers: Please take extra care to ensure children’s safety as leaf collection trucks
make their way through your neighborhood.

The Township appreciates the cooperation of all residents in keeping children safely away from our roadways.

Leaves in the Township will be collected six days a week and will continue until the snow flies in December, as long as the weather holds above freezing.
