Just Throw It In the Street - That's What They Do Around Here

See this huge pile of tree branches and garden clippings? It's what's been sitting next to our sidewalk for a few days, after a gardening team came to trim back all the trees and bushes for the winter. This neighborhood doesn't use yard waste bins, so everything just goes into the street. It's deeply weird to me.

My mom in particular was curious how it gets collected. Is there some kind of street cleaner or giant vacuum that comes by?

I managed to catch the machinery in action this morning.

Oh, my. Jet would practically be turning himself INSIDE OUT if there were actually a whatever-that-thing-is (he knows, I assure you) in our FRONT YARD. Wow.

In the fall we have a big leaf-sucker truck that comes around to vacuum up all the leaf piles. It is awesome.

Okay, that is deeply weird to me too. (And cool.)
