The Batesville Street Department will begin the process of curb-side collection of leaves on Wednesday, October 18 and the program will conclude in December. On average, it takes between two to four weeks to make a complete circuit of the city.
“If residents notice city employees operating the leaf collection machine prior to October 18, it is because they are receiving training on the new machine,” said Street Commissioner Tim Macyauski.
Residents are advised to help out by following these simple guidelines to ensure a successful leaf collection program:
• Place leaves as close to the edge of the street as possible without placing leaves in the street.
• Be sure that leaves are free of any other debris.
• All loose leaves are picked up on street side only.
• No loose leaves are collected in alleyways.
Please note that these services are only provided to residents within the City of Batesville. Collection schedules will only be interrupted in the event of severe weather.
