MARION, IN: (Dec. 9th, 2016) – Leaf pickup in Marion is winding down and will run one final week next week. A new leaf pickup method was implemented this year to save approximately $40,000 in costs to upkeep old equipment, which according to the Citywide Maintenance Department, was becoming a costly and antiquated system. The new method requires residents to bag leaves in paper bags as opposed to simply raking them to the curb. Residents were also encouraged to mulch their leaves to nourish the soil if they have the means.
MARION, IN (Oct. 25th, 2016) – The Marion Citywide Maintenance Department will begin leaf pick-up using the new cost-saving method beginning October 31st.
