Last of autumn is swept away

AS THE last of the trees shed their autumn leaves, council workers are spending 1.5 hours every day blowing the fallen leaves from the main streets and pavements.

A Southern Downs Regional Council spokeswoman said after the workers had finished up with the leaf blowers, the foliage was then collected by a street sweeper which was used three times a week.

Away from the CBD, trees lining Guy St also shed their leaves.

"In Guy St the leaves are blown off the footpath two times a week during the autumn to winter period when the leaves are falling," the spokeswoman said.

She said with not as many leaves falling in Allora and Killarney there was less impact on businesses, with streets only needing to be swept once each week.

"The work is completed to the keep the footpaths clear and is generally a more efficient method than using hand held brooms," the spokeswoman said.
