  1. Leaf pickup for 11/18, 11/19 and 11/20 will be Hulman to College, U.S. 40/46 to 1st
  2. Leaf pickup for the week of 11/23 through 11/24 will be College to Poplar, 1st street to U.S. 40/46. The area for the 23rd and 24th will more than likely last on into the week there after.

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.
