Leaf removal tips for 2017

This year’s city-wide leaf collection efforts will begin in late October 2017 and run until all neighborhoods have been serviced. 

The city uses two Xtreme Vac trucks to collect leaves in conjunction with trash-pickup zones: Monday–Section 1, Tuesday–Section 2, and so on. 

“We appreciate resident patience as we move our way through the city,” Bob Caley, City Services Superintendent, said noting that it could take up to a week to work through a section. 

Caley reminds residents to rake leaves to the area between the sidewalk and curb, not into the street or onto sidewalks. Only leaves should be in the piles—no brush, sticks, or twigs. Pickup of that type of yard debris, which involves different equipment, can be arranged by calling 260-356-4720. Residents also can choose to collect their leaves in brown yard-waste bags and call the same number to schedule a Tuesday pickup
