The city’s fall cleanup kicks into gear next week.
Catch basins choked with leaves and debris will be cleaned out Monday and Tuesday. Street sweeping will start on Wednesday and Thursday, covering the area from Fellsway West to the Malden city line.
There will be no work done next Friday out of respect for Veterans Day. Sweeping will resume on Nov. 14, and continue until the end of the month.
Residents are asked to remove vehicles from the streets on the day their neighborhood is scheduled. The schedule is available at www.medford.org. Inquiries can also be made to the Department of Public Works at 781-393-2417.
