 Beginning Thursday, November 12th and including the week of November 16, the City of Terre Haute will be picking up leaves in the area of Voorhees to Hulman and from Prairieton Road to State Road 46.  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.
