Elkhart Mayor Tim Neese announced the leaf pickup schedule for this spring.

The leaf pickup program will begin in Zone A on Monday April 4 through April 8 in the city of Elkhart. Zone A includes neighborhoods south of the St. Joseph River and west of Third/Main Street.

Zone B pickup will be April 11 through 15 in the neighborhoods north of the St. Joseph River and west of Johnson Street.

Zone C pickup will be April 18 through April 22 in neighborhoods north of the St. Joseph River and east of Johnson Street.

Zone D pickup will be April 25-29 in the neighborhoods south of the St. Joseph River and east of Third/Main Street.

The city is asking residents:

  • Rake the leaves to the curb, not in the street.
  • There should be no limbs, trash, stones or bricks in the leaf pile.
  • Any limbs or branches should be placed in a separate pile.
  • Garden waste, such as floral or vegetable, can be placed on top of the leaf piles, but not mixed in.

In May, residents will also be allowed to place 2 regular bags of leaves in with their weekly trash to be taken to the landfill.
