The City of Nappanee has a contract with a private company for trash collection; you can view the agreement and guidelines by clicking here. The street department does not provide trash removal service. If your pickup was missed or you have a question, please contact the clerk-treasurer’s office at 574-773-2112.
Leaf collection takes place weekly in October and November. Leaves need to be placed along the edge of the street. Residents living along SR 19 and US 6 are asked to bag their leaves for easier collection and to prevent road hazards. We do not pick leaves up in alleyways or private roadways. Leaves outside of these months will need to be bagged.
Brush pickup occurs every Monday, weather permitting, from April to October. Brush consists of normal trimming of trees and bushes. Also, Christmas trees will be collected when left at the curb.
Items NOT picked up: Grass, Sod, Dirt, Stone, Concrete, Mulch, Stumps and Building Materials
In Winter, the street department is committed to clearing city streets efficiently. To accomplish this, the city is divided into quadrants for truck drivers to clear. We appreciate the understanding city residents have after significant snowfalls and we will attempt to clear out streets as safely and quickly as possible.
Nappanee has about 64 lane miles of streets requiring maintenance and resurfacing from time to time. Our drivers are out working in our community daily and note issues for consideration and repair. If you encounter a pothole or other problem, please feel free to call us at 574-773-2112 or send an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Wood Chips and Mulch:
For City residents, we provide wood products we have processed after brush cleanup. Mulch and chips are available on a first-come, first-served basis at our street department building on Wabash Street—due to demand, we cannot deliver these products.
