Painesville providing kits to aid in cleanup after snow
The city announced it has flood clean up kits available to its residents. These kits were delivered by the Lake County Emergency Management Agency, and anyone wanting one should stop by the Fire Department at 28 Mentor Ave. to pick one up.
City officials say they have limited quantities and they will be provided on a first come, first served basis. They are being limited to one per address.
Brush brought down by this winter’s snow and ice will be collected by the city, along with other yard waste as long as it is placed in brown, Kraft paper bags.
“Dedicated crews from Public Works will adidas outlet continually travel all neighborhoods throughout the city for two weeks to collect yard waste and brush placed on the treelawn,” said city Service Director Kevin Lynch,
