Leaf Pick-Up In Terre Haute Starts Next Week

TERRE HAUTE, Ind – The City of Terre Haute will begin leaf pick up next week on Tuesday, November 12, 2019.

Crews will be working in the area from Wabash Avenue to 8th Avenue and from 1st Street to Fruitridge Avenue.

Please have your leaves raked into a pile in the tree row and NOT in the street. Keeping the large piles in the tree row helps keep the storm sewers from becoming easily plugged which then leads to street flooding.

The city says that they work hard to stay on the advertised schedule but heavy rain, snow or freezing temperatures can make it difficult to vacuum the leaves so we sometimes run a few days behind.

The next pickup area will be announced next week through the media and on the City of Terre Haute Facebook page. You can also find an up-to-date schedule on our website at www.terrehaute.in.gov.
