City should take care of its waste

Re "'Claw' lovers brace for loss" (Our Region, June 26): I am fortunate to have three large, beautiful London plane trees on the city park strip adjacent to my small Midtown corner lot. However, these lovely trees drop leaves and seed balls, and shed bark and branches throughout much of the year.

My yard waste piles in the street were frequently larger than what the new container will hold. Where do I put large limbs and other material that won't fit in the container? Do I leave it in piles on the ground pending my one annual city pick-up? That sounds rather unsightly. What about rats?

Additional containers? No, thanks. I can barely squeeze past the existing cans as it is. I somehow object to paying for extra containers to hold debris that comes from the city's trees.

Isn't there a better solution? Anyone?
