Leave on Ground
         Fall Leaves

Beginning Monday, November 30th the City of Terre Haute will be picking up leaves in the area of Poplar Street to Wabash Avenue and from State Road 46 to South 1st St. We will then continue north bound during the following weeks.  

An updated leaf pickup schedule will be announced each week through the media. You may also find the regularly updated schedule on our website at www.terrehaute.in.gov and on our “The City of Terre Haute” Facebook page. The leaf pick up schedule is weather dependent and therefore subject to change.

Important notes:

  • Some crews may periodically work in other areas of the city (not on the weekly schedule) that have large accumulations of leaves in order to keep storm drains open. If you see our crews working outside the “scheduled” area please do not be concerned if you do not have your leaves ready. They will be back during the officially scheduled week.   
  • Once we have completed the initial pickup throughout the entire city we will make a second pass through areas with significant remaining leaves. You can also call 311 at that time to request a second pick-up.   
  • Please have your leaves raked neatly into a pile in the tree row (or city right-of-way), and NOT into the street. Our crews will come through and blow them into the street prior to pick up. This prevents storm sewers from becoming plugged which causes streets to flood. 

PLEASE NOTE: Republic will haul away up to ten (10) bags of leaves per week.

LIMB PICKUP

The City is responsible for and will pick up limbs and debris caused by storm damage to trees in a City tree row. We will not pick up limbs, trees, debris or trimmings from a homeowner's yard. Disposal of material cut from a homeowner's yard is the responsibility of the homeowner.

OUR MISSION 
The mission of the Terre Haute Street department is to provide a safe network of streets, avenues, and alleys throughout the City. We intend to do this by responding promptly and courteously to citizen's requests and concerns. A few of this Department's specific responsibilities include pothole repair, grading and repairing alleys, snow and ice removal, street sweeping, leaf collection, mowing city right-of-ways and maintenance of street and traffic signs.
