HIGHLAND PUBLIC WORKS
LEAF COLLECTION ONLY
It’s that time of year when Public Works switches from branch pickup to leaf collection. Please refrain from trimming your trees unless necessary. There will be no branch collection in December, January or February. Residents can bring yard waste to the Public Works Facility located at 8001 Kennedy Avenue and dump them at no charge.
INFO: Call (219) 972-5083.
NO OPEN BURNING
Burning leaves or any other refuse is banned within the municipal boundaries of town. The Town Council made the regulation to prevent leaf fires from unintentionally spreading to nearby homes, sheds and garages. Lawn refuse also tends to generate a great deal of smoke, which can create or exacerbate breathing problems for neighbors.
The Town of Highland is looking for temporary help for leaf collection from Oct. 9 through Dec. 15. The job pays $9 per hour.
