Mayor Announces Autumn Leaf Drop-Off
Monday October 3, 2005
Mayor Jerry Abramson today announced autumn leaf drop-off sites for the city’s suburban residents.
Drop-off for loose leaves begins Oct. 17 and continues through Dec. 15. Four drop-off sites in the suburban areas will operate Monday through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The sites will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, the Friday after Thanksgiving and on Sundays.
Leaves will continue to be collected in the Urban Services District as part of regularly scheduled yard waste pick up.
“I know residents need a convenient place to dispose of the leaves they collect and I hope they’ll take advantage of this free service,” said Abramson. “Proper leaf disposal reduces the risk of fire and flooding, plus it keeps Louisville looking its best.”
The suburban sites for leaf drop-off are:
· 1st District Works Yard, 595 Hubbards Lane
· 2nd District Works Yard, 3528 Newburg Road
· 3rd District Works Yard, 7219 Dixie Highway.
· Special Construction Yard, 617 Outer Loop
Residents must empty bags at the drop-off sites and dispose of the bags off site. For questions about leaf drop-off or leaf collection, residents can call MetroCall at 311 or visit Louisville Metro's official website.
