Please do not mix limbs or other objects with your leaves, as this will plug up the intake hoses on the leaf vacuums. WE WILL NOT PICK UP PILES OF LEAVES WITH STICKS AND LIMBS MIXED IN.

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 dump 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 office at 885-2520 between the hours of

7 a.m. and 3 p.m. weekdays.
