ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -

Those of you wanting to get rid of those leaves -- this is the week.

Crews will be out one last time this week to pick up any leftover leaves in St. Joseph County.

Greenworld crews will only take your leaves if they're within five feet of your curb.

Make sure your leaf piles are free of any debris or grass clippings.

But if you didn't get a chance to rake this weekend.

Keep in mind leaf burning is allowed this week, and this week only, in unincorporated parts of St. Joseph County.

The county is temporarily lifting its ban to allow homeowners to get rid of their leaves right away.
