The New Haven Utility Department will begin its annual, leaf only, pick up on October 14, 2014 and continue through December 5, 2014. Leaves that are picked up are recycled into compost, which is available free to the public at the Utility Complex located at 2455 Summit Street. Therefore, eliminating trash and debris is of the utmost importance. Bagged leaves WILL NOT be accepted as this will inhibit the pick up process and the bags are not conducive to composting. Leaves should be ready on the first pick up day of the week that crews are scheduled to be in your part of the city. Leaves must be raked onto the park strip between the sidewalk and curb (NOT IN THE STREET), and away from street signs, poles, mailboxes and parked cars. Long rows are preferred over one big pile. Weather conditions, utility emergencies and mechanical problems may alter the schedule slightly, but all leaves will be picked up as close to the published schedule as possible.

Each fall the annual crop harvest coupled with the beginning of hunting season and the “rut,” (deer mating season) makes deer movement more prominent and the number of car/deer crashes increase. Motorists are reminded to use extra caution when driving in rural areas of Indiana. Deer are generally more active in the early morning (pre-dawn) hours or the hours just after dusk but could be on the move at anytime. .

Motorists should take the following precautions when driving in rural areas to avoid having a crash involving a deer:

•When possible use high beam headlights at night and be aware that deer could be standing on or near the side of the roadway.
•Drivers should watch approaching vehicles and observe what may break their headlights beams; it could be a passing deer. This technique allows extra time to slow your speed and be alert for the deer.
•Watch for reflections from the deer’s eyes.
•Where there is one deer there are often several. Do not assume you missed the deer because more could follow. BE ALERT!
•If your vehicle strikes a deer, do not touch it. A frightened or wounded deer can cause you serious bodily injury. Remain in your car, make sure you and your passengers are safe, and call the police to obtain a crash report for your insurance company. You should report this as you would any other crash.
•Make sure everyone in your vehicle is buckled up!

For more information concerning deer habits, population, and trends in your area contact your local conservation officer or the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Division of Fish and Wildlife at or call 317-232-4200.
