The City of Greencastle Department of Public Works will begin the annual leaf pick-up on October 18 and run through November 30.
The department asks that residents in the city limits rake their leaves only, no limbs or other debris, to the curb or between the sidewalk and the street. For those who do not have a curb or sidewalk, please put your leaves out near the street, but not in the street. Please do not rake leaves into the street.
The department will be following the trash routes, so please have leaves ready for pick-up the day before your normal trash pick-up day. The Department will only go through each day’s route once during the week unless our efforts are ahead of schedule.
Holidays will be run the day before, if possible, along with the regular route for the day. Veterans Day, Thursday, November 11, will be run on Wednesday, November 10. The Thursday and Friday routes of Thanksgiving break will be run on Wednesday, November 24.
For updates and schedule changes, please check the local newspapers, the local radio station, and the City’s Facebook page. Weather and equipment breakdowns may impact the schedule.
The city composts the leaves that are collected each year. After composting for a period of time, the materials are used to support community plantings and gardens.
Also, please note that the Putnam County Yard Waste Site will close for the season at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 30. Regular hours are Monday and Wednesday from noon until 6:00 pm and Saturdays from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Please dispose of twigs, limbs and other yard waste at this site.
