The Mishawaka Street Department will begin the city’s annual fall leaf collection program on Monday, October 17, 2016 and will follow a schedule that should help residents plan their leaf raking activities. Residents may begin raking leaves to their curbside starting the weekend of October 15-16. Leaves will be picked up each week on the day before each resident’s regular trash pick-up day. Those with a Monday trash pickup will have their leaves picked up on Friday. The leaf collection program will continue through November or until leaves are no longer a problem for residents.
Trick or Treat times within the City for Halloween 2016 will be from 5pm-7pm on Monday, October 31st. Please use extra caution when driving during these times as many children will be walking the streets in their hunt for goodies.
The Mishawaka Police Department has provided some great Safety Tips for Halloween. We ask that you please take a few moments to read them over. Have a fun-filled Halloween!
