Brush collection will begin Monday, September 25. Please place all leaves and brush at the curb but not in the street, so as to not cause a road hazard or hinder water drainage. Brush piles placed in alleyways will not be picked up. Do not place piles around fire hydrants, mailboxes or telephone poles. Crews, also, cannot access the piles if blocked by vehicles.
During scheduled brush collections, the Street Department will make only one pass through the city to pick up brush. Please have your brush out by Monday morning at 7 a.m. Feel free to call the Street Department at 534.9711 or visit the Street Department webpage at goshenindiana.org/street-department if you have questions.
PLEASE NOTE: This is the last official brush collection of the year. The street department will promptly begin collecting leaves the following week, on October 2.
The crews will drive around the city collecting leaves. For those who were not able to rake their leaves to the curb this week, the street department will continue onto its full-on leaf collection until the first snowfall of the season.
For those who may have yard waste beyond collection weeks, the Environmental Center, located the intersection of Indiana Avenue and C.R. 19, is free to Goshen residents and open 52 weeks a year. From April through November, their hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday, 8 a.m.-noon; and from December through March their hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. The Environmental Center is closed on Sunday and holidays. The Center accepts brush, leaves (loose or in a bag), at no charge for Goshen residents. If the leaves are bagged, the bags must be emptied.
