ELKHART The city of Elkhart is turning its leaf pickups into a source of profit. They are selling things like wood chips, compost, logs and firewood to residents.

The distribution center is a city facility located at 1730 Toledo Road. They're open Monday through Saturday from 7:30 to 2:30, but residents have to pay ahead of time at the Public Works Office, located at 1201 S. Nappanee St.

The cost for firewood is $25 per year. The city will unload wood chips, logs and compost for $10 dollars. It’s $5 without delivery. Fill dirt is free, or $5 for haulding.

According to The Elkhart Truth, residents can also drop off brush and limbs at the Toledo Road site. They'll take leaves and grass at a later date.
