We appreciate the community’s efforts to clean-up <br />the remaining leaves and our goal is to complete this as soon as possible before our crews begin our in- <br />house paving and repair program.”  Leaf pickup and recycling (at Organic Resources) is an important <br />part of South Bend’s Clean City effort.  <br /> <br />All residents are encouraged to rake their loose leaves to the curb, and then call the Division of <br />Street at 235-9244 for pick-up. <br /> <br />YARD WASTE PICKUP <br /> <br />Bagged leaves and bagged or bundled yard waste pickup is also available, on a call-in basis, <br />through the Division of Solid Waste until Thursday, April 16.  The automatic program (no call-in <br />necessary) will begin Monday, April 19.  Please call the Bureau of Solid Waste at <br /> <br />277-8823 to schedule a pickup.  <br /> <br />-30- <br /> <br />Mikki Dobski, Dir. <br />Communications and  Special Projects <br />1400 County-City Bldg <br />So.
