The city said due to the milder weather conditions, it has extended the collection of seasonal yard waste through the week of Dec. 4.

The one week extension will give more time for trees to drop their remaining leaves.

The Department of Public Works has revised the collection schedule. The following dates are the last collection days for seasonal yard waste:
