BATESVILLE, Ind. Leaf Collection Begins

The Batesville Street Department has begun the process of curb-side collection of leaves and the program will conclude in December. On average, it takes between two to four weeks to make a complete circuit of the city.

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 and cars are not blocking the path of the leaf machine.
• 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.

Please visit the city’s website for more information on leaf and limb collection.
