Citizens are asked to put the leaves adjacent the curb, but not extending into the street. Residents should not put limbs, trash, stones or bricks in the leaf piles. Any branches or limbs should be in a separate pile. Garden waste – such as floral or vegetable – may be placed on top of the leaf piles, but not mixed in. The regular weekly trash service will not pick up leaves to take to the landfill.
If you have any questions, please contact the Elkhart Street Department directly at 574-293-5518; however, there is no need to contact the Street Department to provide an address for pickup. These services will be automatically provided during October and early November.
