Leaf pick-up program dates announced for Mishawaka

MISHAWAKA, Ind. – The Mishawaka Street Department will begin the city’s annual fall leaf-pick up program on Monday, October 22.

Residents can gather leaves for pickup on the curbside starting October 20.

The Street Department will be picking up leaves the day before each resident’s regular trash pick-up day. Those with a Monday trash pick-up will have leaves picked up on Friday.

According to the Street Department, leaves should be left on the edge of the curb and should be free of branches, twigs, stones, or other similar objects.

Residents are encouraged to not put leaves in the street right after a vacuum unit has come through an area. The vacuum will not return until the next scheduled pick-up date and leaves may clog sewer inlets or go into neighboring yards and streets.

Reminder that leaves can always be bagged and put out with weekly trash pick-up and brush can continue to be taken to the Mishawaka Recycling Center.

The leaf collection program will continue through Friday, December 7.

Any further questions about the program can be answered by calling Street Commissioner Tim Ryan at the Mishawaka Street Dept. 258-1660.
