Residents should rake leaves prior to calling 311 to ensure they are picked up.Leaves need to be free of sticks, trash and other debris or they will not be picked up.Yard waste material can be put in the City’s yard waste bin. The weekly yard waste program starts April 1. Residents interested in participating in the program can sign up at southbendin.gov/yardwaste  or by calling 311.Cars should not be parked on top of or in front of leaf piles along curb lines, as this hampers crews from collecting leaves.Burning of leaves in South Bend is prohibited and is a violation of City ordinance.
