2021 Spring ReLeaf Program


The City of South Bend’s annual Spring ReLeaf Program will be offered on a call-in basis beginning Monday, March 29. Residents can call 311 to request a leaf pickup from Monday, March 29 to Friday, April 9. Pickup will begin the week of April 12. 

Loose leaves must be raked to the curb and should be free of sticks, trash and other debris or they will not be collected. 



What is Spring ReLeaf?

Spring ReLeaf is a service provided by the City to pick up loose leaves for residents on a call-in basis.


Who can request a leaf pickup?

Residents in the city limits can request leaf pickup by calling 311 from March 29 to April 9. Leaves need to be free of trash and other debris or they may not be collected.


When will my leaves get picked up?

Residents can call 311 to request leaf pickup from March 29 to April 9. Leaf pickup will begin the week of April 12.


Where should I put my leaves?

Leaves should be raked to the tree lawn area (the section of grass between the sidewalk and the street), NOT into the street, to prevent them from clogging storm inlets. Resident should rake leaves prior to calling 311 to ensure they are picked up. 

Residents are asked to follow these guidelines for the program:

  • Leaves need to be free of trash and other debris or they may not be collected.  
  • Leaves need to be in the tree lawn area by 6:00 a.m. to ensure they are picked up. 
  • Rake leaves to the tree lawn, NOT into the street.
  • Avoid parking on top or in front of leaf piles along curb lines, as this hampers our crew from collecting the leaves.
  • Burning of leaves is prohibited and is a violation of City ordinance.
  • Residents may call 311 with any questions
