Spring Releaf is operated on a call-in <br /> basis and crews have been busy collecting loose leaves daily. South Bend residents are <br /> encouraged to take advantage of the beautiful weather to get the last of their leaves to the curb. <br /> This will be the last week of loose leaf pickup, so that street crews can prepare for the paving <br /> season. Residents are asked to please call the Bureau of Streets at 235-9244 to request a pickup. <br /> After April 14,residents are asked to bag their leaves. <br /> The City will begin its automatic Yard Waste program offered through the Bureau of <br /> Solid Waste on Monday, April 10. Each week, residents may place their bagged or bundled yard <br /> waste at the curb on their normal trash collection day for pickup. No call-in will be necessary for <br /> yard waste pickup. Residents are asked to follow these guidelines for yard waste pickup: <br /> 1. Yard waste and brush must be bagged or bundled(no more than 4 feet in length or 4 inches in <br /> diameter). <br /> 2. Please use suitable containers (30 gallon trash container or smaller) - do not place yard <br /> waste in City automated trash containers. <br /> 3. As always, please place yard waste at the curb and separate from trash and debris. <br /> 4. Do not place yard waste in the alleys. <br /> South Bend's yard waste is recycled at the City's Organic Resources Facility, diverting <br /> this material from our community's landfill and providing quality mulch for reuse. City residents <br /> can reap the rewards of their efforts by going to Organic Resources to pick up high quality mulch <br />
