Leaf Collection Begins Week of October 15

The week of October 15, after the Navy Bean Fall Festival, leaf collection will begin.  For those within the Rising Sun city limits, please use the following guidelines for leaf collection:

-  Leaves must be raked and piled in rows along the street for easy access.

-  Avoid placing leaves by mailboxes, signs or trees with low hanging branches because those will interfere with the swing arm.

-  Don’t place garbage or large sticks in the leaves.

-  Leaves will be collected on a street-to-street basis.  Please do not call to request leaf pickup.

-  Residents who bag yard clippings and/or leaves must use biodegradable paper bags available locally at Rising Sun IGA.

-  Chipping will stop during leaf season but small brush pickup will continue.
