Leaf Pickup Program


The City of South Bend will begin leaf pickup on Monday, October 30. City crews will make two passes to collect leaves from neighborhoods, street by street. The dates for the first round of pickup have been released. A second round will be announced at the end of November at southbendin.gov/leafpickup.

All dates on the schedule are weather permitting and any changes will be posted on the City's website. Track the progress of City crews using the Leaf Pickup Live Tracker.

Residents WILL NOT need to call to request a pickup. Leaves need to be free of trash and other debris or they may not be collected.
