The Rising Sun Street Department will conduct leaf collection starting October 21 within the Rising Sun city limits.

The following rules must be followed:

– Leaves must be raked and piled in rows along the street for easy access.
– Avoid placing leaves by mailboxes, signs or trees with low hanging branches because those will interfere with the swing arm.
– Don’t place garbage or large sticks in the leaves.
– Leaves will be collected on a street-to-street basis. Please do not call to request leaf pickup.
– Residents who bag yard clippings and/or leaves must use biodegradable paper bags available locally at Rising Sun IGA.
– Chipping will stop during leaf season but small brush pickup will continue.

And as a reminder, the final Dumpster Day of 2019 will be Saturday, November 2 from 7 am to 11 am.
