If you are trimming back your trees, you can bundle the branches up in four-foot lengths and set them at the curb. You will need to buy a green Compost It! sticker to put on the bundle so it will be picked up. This fall, if you plan to decorate with pumpkins, you can toss them into your Compost It! bags when you are ready to get rid of them. You can always find more information on our yard waste program at www.norwalk.iowa.gov/departments/ UtilityServices simply click on the "Trash Recyding Yard Waste" button on the left of the screen. Finally, my good friend Dr. Denny Wulf has announced his retirement, effective June 30, 2016. As a teacher, a building administrator and as a superintendent, Dr. Wulf has had a tremendous impact on the students of Norwalk and their parents. Many of those students are now adult residents of Norwalk and have their own children in the Norwalk Community School District. The next time yon see Dr. Wulf, please congratulate him and let him know how much you appreciate everything he has done for the school and the City of Norwalk. --I[9.
