North Liberty leaf collection slows because of damage to vacuum truck

Posted: Updated:
NORTH LIBERTY (KWWL) -
Leaf collection isn't quite on schedule in North Liberty because one of the city's vacuum trucks was damaged when it sucked up a piece of concrete.
The concrete piece was hidden under a pile of leaves on the curb for collection and was sucked into the truck's impeller; the truck was damaged, but no one was hurt. 
The truck will be out of service through the end of the leaf collection season, and leaf collectors will rely on older, less efficient equipment to get the job done. 
North Liberty residents should keep leaf piles free of sticks, branches, rocks and concrete. 
To help speed up leaf collection, residents can avoid parking in front of piles.
