Fall Branch Pick Up in Merrillville
Due to the excessive summer storms, the Town of Merrillville Public Works Department will conduct a town wide Branch pick-up program beginning Sept. 6. The town will be divided up into four collection areas. Branches need to be piled by the road at the beginning of the area's pick-up week for collection. The Public Works Department will only make one pass through the town. Branches set out late will not be collected. The pick up schedule is as follows: Week of Sept. 6 - 53rd Avenue south to 61st Avenue; Week of Sept. 12 - 61st Avenue south to 73rd Avenue; Week of Sept. 19 -73rd Avenue south to U.S. 30; Week of Sept. 26 - U.S. 30 south to the town limits. Residents are still encouraged to dispose of their branches and yard waste at the Public Works facility, 13 W. 73rd Ave.
