Fall Collection 

  • Rake leaves to the park strip by 7am on the first day of the week when crews will be in your area.
  • Don't put leaves in trash or recycling cart - this is against the law in the State of Indiana.
  • Don't burn leaves.  It's a violation of City Code and can result in a fine.
  • Don't place leaves in the street.
  • Don't place leaves in storm drains.

Want to Schedule your pick-up?  You can!

Just place the leaves in brown paper biodegradable leaf bags, set them at the curb, and call 311 to schedule a pick-up. The leaf bags will be collected within two business days of your call to 311.
