Leaf pick-up in the Village of Edwardsburg will begin October 22, 2018 and continue through November 30, 2018, weather permitting. Leaves must be raked into a pile along the shoulder of the street. Piles should be no wider than six feet to keep them out of the traffic area. There may be no sticks, branches, or other large debris in the leaf piles as these will damage the Village leaf vacuum. Leaf piles containing debris WILL NOT be picked up. Leaf burning is NOT permissible within village limits.
