Please do not mix limbs or other objects with your leaves because this will plug up the intake hoses on the leaf vacuums. Piles of leaves with other objects included will not be picked up. Please move your leaves to the curb for collection by the beginning of the week your area is scheduled below.
Residents may also choose to place leaves and other similar yard debris in containers, then call the Street Department’s office at 885-2520 before noon on Wednesdays to arrange a special pickup on Fridays. As a general rule, the department will be unable to pick up limbs during leaf pickup season.
The city’s collection site on Old Terre Haute Road will be open 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday for residents to dispose of their own yard debris, leaves, and limbs. People must empty their containers at the site and take those containers with them.
The day-by-day schedule is tentative and is subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances, such as mechanical problems as well as the weather. If anyone has any questions regarding the day of their pickup, please contact the Street Department office at 885-2520 between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. weekdays.
