The Crown Point Street Department handles the majority of yard waste removal. Please see below for information and tips on waste removal.
Brush and leaves should be separate.
Both brush and leaves should be free from any other debris, trash, rocks, sticks, etc.
If you are placing bushes out for brush pick-up, please ensure the root ball is removed. If brush has a root ball attached, it will not be picked up by the chipper. Please separate the root ball, which will be picked up by a separate truck.
Please stack brush with cut ends facing the same direction.
If a service is hired to do tree work, the service is responsible for removal of the brush.
Piles of brush and/or leaves should be in the parkway within 6 feet of the curb. Please do not place yard debris in the street.
Piles should be placed in the parkway so there are no obstructions. Obstructions can include vehicles, mailboxes, guide wires, utility poles, trees, etc.
Garden waste should be separated from brush and leaves.
It is not necessary to call the Street Department when yard waste is at the curb. The Street Department has a regular route it follows through the city and will pick up yard waste when they are in your area.
Spring leaf pick-up will begin the first week of April, weather permitting, and will continue throughout the month, weather permitting
Fall leaf pick-up will begin the first week of October, weather permitting, and will continue until the first snowfall.
