Leaf Collection Ends Wednesday, December 5

Leaf collection ends Wednesday, December 5 because the truck used for the service will be converted to snow removal.  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.
