2021 City Curbside Leaf Collection

Curbside Vacuum Pickup:  November 8 - December 23, 2021

Inclement weather can alter our schedule.

All leaves must be as close to the curb as possible and may not be in the roadway, blocking drains or around fire hydrants.

Leaves will be vacuumed, so please DO NOT include other waste as it may clog equipment.

If you should have any questions or comments on our leaf collection program, please call our office at 812-349-3448 between the hours of 6:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Thursday.

Bi-Weekly Yard Waste Pickup

On your regular yard waste collection day, you may set out leaves bagged in biodegradable/paper bags for collection.

Green: Mulch and Compost your Leaves!

Recycling your leaves by composting is the greenest way to both reduce waste and create useful fertilizer for your yard. It's natural, easy, and requires almost no maintenance and can be done in any number of ways. Plus, the leaves you compost can be used as mulch or as a valuable nutrient in your soil.
