You will sweat adrenaline and taste fear while dancing on the edge of possibility. Nah, just kidding it's the free leaf pickup announcement. Not everything can be a can of gasoline and a box of matches we have a community to run here and Danbury offers a very nice lead pickup program that helps the city look her best.

Here is Everything You Need to Know About the Leaf Pickup Program

Who is eligible? 

This is for Danbury residents only and Hat City folks are divided into two groups to make the process easier. Group A are people who live in the 06810 Zip code while Group B people live in the 06811 zip code.

No.

What do they take? 

ONLY LEAVES bagged in PAPER LEAF BAGS with NO TAPE should be left at the curbside in front of residences for the city’s Highway Department to pick-up.

What do they refuse to take?

17 Stunning Danbury Photos Along With Random Odd Facts About the City

The day I took this round of pictures (September 15 or 16th I can't remember), the light all over the city was just perfect. The sun was dancing in all the right places on the buildings, the trees and the grass. I said to hell with it, I'm publishing these photos. But what should I write in the description? I decided to pair the images with odd Danbury facts I gathered from prior articles. 

Maybe this works out, maybe not at least I can say "look at this!"
