Starting Monday, the city of East Moline will provide free leaf bags for residents through Dec. 5, the date of the last leaf pick-up.

There will be no leaf pick-up during Thanksgiving week. The city will be closed for the holiday Nov. 22 and 23.

Residents can pick up one free bundle of five leaf bags each week at city hall, 915 16th Ave., or at the Maintenance and Engineering Department, 1200 13th Ave. Proof of residency must be shown.

Leaf bags are being donated by Alds. Jeff Stulir and Helen Heiland and city clerk Arletta Holmes.
