COLUMBUS, Ind.–The Columbus Department of Public Works reminds that their Fall Loose Leaf Program begins this Monday. Residential loose leaves will be collected curbside from October 16 through December 15. Leaves need to be on the curb, NOT in the street, by 7 a.m. on your designated trash day. Leaves will not be picked up if they are in bags. If you choose to bag your compost material, you may bring it to the compost site at 720 S. Mapleton St., next door to the Department of Public Works.
