The Logansport Street Department will begin collecting yard waste and brush on a regular schedule the week of April 1.
Yard waste must be placed in biodegradable bags and weigh less than 50 lbs. Biodegradable bags are available at local hardware stores.
No rocks, dirt, sod, walnuts, animal feces, trash and/or plastic are to be place in the bags. Pick-up is the same day and location as your household trash pick -up. Tree and bush trimmings are picked up on an every-other week basis. Brush piles should be stacked with cut ends facing the street or alley. Stack the piles in an area where the Street Department dump trucks can easily maneuver; do not stack piles of brush under guy wires or low hanging limbs, etc. Brush should be no longer than 4 ft. in length and neatly stacked. Logs and brush should be stacked separately.
If your pile is too large or too tangled, it will be picked up with a loader after the regular brush routes are finished.
*The Street Department does not cleanup work done by contractors.
The city turns the yard waste and brush into compost and mulch. Free mulch and compost are available to city and county residents beginning April 1 through November 30, Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. at the Street Department, 612 Race Street. This is on a “load your own” basis and limited to a pick-up load. PLEASE CHECK IN AT THE OFFICE PRIOR TO LOADING.
*Compost and mulch is not available to contractors
