Earth Week ushers in spring yard waste services in Warsaaw

News Release

WARSAW — The city of Warsaw has announced details for its annual yard waste and spring cleanup services.

The City of Warsaw Public Works Department, along with Borden Waste Away
Services/Integra and Waste Management will offer expanded services
to the residents of the City in celebration of Earth Week.

The following services will be made available to residents Monday, April 17,
through Friday, April 21:

LOOSE LEAF PICKUPS — Large piles of leaves can be raked to the curb or alley.
They will be picked up on your regular trash day and need to be out by 7:00
a.m. Please do not put sticks or other trash in the leaf piles. Small piles will
need to be bagged or boxed and will be picked up on your regular trash day.
As a reminder, leaves cannot be raked into the streets and gutter lines. This
clogs the stormwater catch basins and creates drainage issues that can lead
to flooding.

SPRING CLEANING — Waste Management has offered to place four thirty-yard containers at their local transfer station. Residents (IDs will be checked to verify addresses) can
drop off items (not truck loads from rental property cleanouts) at no charge.
Waste Management will donate the dumping fees and are excited to offer
residents assistance in disposing of their spring cleaning items. This service
will be free of charge to the residents residing within the corporate city limits
of Warsaw. Waste Management’s transfer station is located at 2352 N.
Boeing Road, Warsaw. Their hours are 6 a.m. to 4 p.m.

SHREDDING EVENT — Borden Waste Away/Integra Shredding will host a community shred drive day. This will be a “drive-through” service. Integra will have a shred truck at
the Public Works Department, located at 794 West Center Street, on
Wednesday, April 19, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. City employees will load
your papers into totes, and Integra will shred the documents on the spot.

LEAF BAGS AVAILABLE — Paper lawn and leaf bags will be available for city
residents to pick up at the Public Works Department, located at 794 West
Center Street. Residents (ID’s will be checked to verify addresses) are invited
to pick up six (6) bundles of paper lawn and leaf bags to utilize for your
natural debris pickup for 2023. Hours for distribution will be regular business
hours, Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

WOOD CHIPS, YARD WASTE AVAILABLE — Wood chips, ground leaves and ground yard
waste will be available for pickup beginning Monday, April 17.  Hours are 7:30 a.m. to 3
p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 22, or
until debris is depleted.

The public is encouraged to bring trailers, dump trucks, pickup trucks and/or small
containers to West Center Street just inside Boggs Industrial Park. City
employees will load the items. All items are grindings from earlier this year.
