Residents should remember during their scheduled pickup dates to place leaves in a separate pile from brush and limbs. Leaf machines are designed to pick up leaves only.
Leaves should also be raked to the curb, but not extending into the street.
Residents can also choose to dispose of their own leaves by taking them to the Elkhart County Landfill.
