Mishawaka's fall leaf pickup program starts October 24

MISHAWAKA, Ind. - The Mishawaka Street Department will start its annual fall leaf pickup program on October 24. Residents can start raking their leaves to curbs starting Saturday.

Leaves will be picked up each week the day before trash pickup day. Residents with a Monday trash pickup day will have their leaves picked up on Friday.

Residents should rake their leaves to the edge of the curb. Piles should not contain branches, twigs, stones, or other foreign objects, as this can damage equipment and delay pickups.

Leaves can also be bagged and put out with weekly trash pickup starting Monday. The bag limit with trash services has been waived through December 16.

Brush can be taken to the Mishawaka Recycling Center, located at 1105 E. Fifth St. The center's last day of operation is December 3.

Contact Street Commissioner Tim Ryan at the Mishawaka Street Department, 574-258-1660, with questions.
