It seems every year in December, St. Joseph County residents grow frustrated with the leaf pickup program. This year is no exception.
Piles of leaves at least three feet high lay waiting for pickup at Granger’s Sherwood Forest neighborhood. Those piles are now covered with snow and there’s no plans on those leaves being picked up anytime soon.
Barbara Bennet has lived in the neighborhood for 18 years and tells ABC 57 she’s furious.
“Where are we supposed to put these leaves? The county was supposed to take care of it for us. We want to know what happened,” says Bennet. “It’s a hazard I think It’s a safety hazard for drivers, for people who walk, so it really needs to be taken care of and this is all over St. joseph county. I know it’s not just our subdivision.”
A scheduled pass by GreenWorld through the neighborhood was scheduled, but it never happened.
Their website also states it doesn’t provide interviews or comments to reporters, referring the issue to county commissioners…who also have yet to respond to the leaf pickup problem.
