Place fallen leaves in paper bags or reusable containers for pick-up [West Laurel]

October is upon us with all the hopes of a colorful and beautiful autumn. Once all those lovely hues of yellow, orange and red fall to the ground, there will be work to do. Raking up leaves in our tree-hearty community has always been a chore. Remember that the Prince George's County Department of Environmental Resources will no longer accept yard waste in plastic bags. Residents must bag their yard waste in paper bags or use reusable containers with sturdy handles and tight fitting lids that are properly marked to be picked up curbside. Do not place bags of leaves in the street. Plastic bags will not be accepted for pick-up. In the meantime, enjoy the autumnal view!

Plan ahead for West Laurel Dumpster Day, which will be held Saturday, Nov. 1 from 8:30 a.m. to noon (or until the dumpsters are filled). No hazardous materials, tires, oil pants, etc. will be accepted. Bring your dumpster items to the West Laurel Community Building parking lot. The dumpsters are available on a first-come, first-served basis until the dumpsters are full. This event is sponsored by the West Laurel Civic Association. Once again, seniors can request assistance with getting items to the dumpster by contacting Jason Float at 443 765-5300 in advance.

Fall also brings pumpkins, apple cider and a chill in the air and lots of craft fairs. Our favorite seniors of the Laurel Senior Friendship Club are sponsoring a Fall Craft Show Saturday, Oct. 18 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Laurel-Beltsville Senior Activity Center at 7120 Contee Road, behind the Laurel Regional Hospital.

Crafts include handmade items and jewelry. A bake sale table and snack bar will be available just in case you have to rest a spell between craft tables. For more information, call Betty Mannas at 301- 953-2503.
