This is a reminder that the last leaf collection of the year will begin Monday, December 3.  Street Department crews making the rounds do not have a set schedule for what parts of the city they will go to and when, so residents are advised to pile their leaves on the curb by Sunday evening, December 2.

Residents who miss the last round of leaf pickup can still take their leaves to the Goshen Environmental Center, 20100 CR 19. Their hours in the winter are Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Their number is 533-6200.

The center accepts brush and leaves, loose or in bags, at no charge to Goshen residents. However, if leaves are bagged, the bags must be emptied. There is a small fee for disposal of yard waste and grass clippings.

For more information on raking do’s and don’t see the Street Department’s website at
