The Office of Mayor Duane Parry is informing residents of Michigan City about the fall leaf pickup schedule.

Mayor Parry’s Office gave the following information:

The Michigan City Street Department will begin fall leaf pickup on Monday, November 13th, 2003
If residents would like weekly pickups of their leaves, they may use compost/yard waste bags (no plastic bags) available from area merchants (NO TOTERS PLEASE!). Leaves in paper yard bags or 32-gallon trash cans should be placed in the front of property, and will be picked up, by the Refuse Department with regular compost day until the week ending November 17, 2023.
The Street Department request that residents cooperate by following these simple rules:
No plastic bags are to be used; however, you may use compost yard waste bags or 32- gallon containers.
Branches, rocks, and other debris must be kept out of the leaf piles.
Leaf piles should be loose in large piles in front of the property as close to the curb as possible, but away from the sewer drains, utility equipment and fire hydrants.
Please keep animal waste out of piles.
Leaves will not be picked up in alleys.
