October 25, 2019
On Monday, October 28, Mayor Pete Buttigieg will meet with City crews to kick off the 2019 Fall ReLeaf program at 4:30 p.m. in the 1700 block of Scottswood Drive. The Mayor will join a ReLeaf crew to demonstrate how residents should prepare their leaves for pickup.
For the 2019 program, the City has launched a Fall ReLeaf Interactive Map to let residents view leaf pickup in real-time. The map will show the status of different zones and leaf pickup on individual streets. Residents can view the map on the City’s homepage at southbendin.gov. Note: Residents can type in their address or zoom in to find their streets. The map will take a few seconds to load the data.
The Fall ReLeaf program begins Monday, October 28 and will run through Wednesday, November 27. City crews will make two passes to collect leaves from neighborhoods, street by street. Residents WILL NOT need to call to request a pickup. A schedule is available at southbendin.gov/fallreleaf.
Below are guidelines that residents are asked to follow for the program.
- Leaves need to be raked to the tree lawn area, NOT into the street, by 6:00 a.m. on the pickup date to ensure they are picked up.
- Leaves need to be free of sticks, trash and other debris or they may not be picked up.
- Cars should not be parked on top or in front of leaf piles along curb lines, as this hampers leaf collection.
- Leaf burning is prohibited and is a violation of City ordinance.
- Residents can call 311 with any questions.
