Spring Leaf Pickup April 17-21

Mayor David Wood announced today that the Mishawaka Street Department will be picking up leaves for one week, starting Monday, April 17, 2016. This means that Mishawaka residents may begin raking leaves to their curbside for a Monday, April 17th pickup which will continue for a one week period only, through Friday, April 21st.

Leaves will be picked up the day before the resident’s regular trash pick-up day. For example, if a resident’s trash pick-up day is on Wednesday, the Mishawaka Street Department will pick up leaves from that residence on Tuesday. The Monday scheduled trash pick-ups will have their leaves picked up on Friday, April 21st.

Leaves should be raked to the edge of the curb and should be free of branches, twigs, stones or similar foreign objects which can damage equipment and delay leaf pick-up.

Please remember that leaves may always be bagged and put out with your weekly trash pick-up. Brush may continue to be taken to the Mishawaka Recycling Center, 1105 East Fifth Street, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Any questions about the program can be answered by calling Street Commissioner, Tim Ryan, at the Mishawaka Street Dept. (574) 258-1660.
