Urban Services District (map it) residents can put yard waste out on the curb, but it may take several weeks before curbside waste is picked up.
Residents should use one of the 10 drop off locations above as their first priority. If residents choose to place yard debris on the curb, tree limbs should be cut to no more than 3 feet long and not so heavy that they can’t be moved by one person.
More information from Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District:
- Rent a chipper/shredder to turn that tree into usable mulch for your yard.
- Contact a contractor to remove it. Please be patient, they are very busy.
Remember! Burning your storm debris to dispose of it is prohibited! Open burning regulations do not allow disposal of yard waste or storm debris by burning. For more information, visit the Air Pollution Control website at www.louisvilleky.gov/apcd or call (502) 574-6000.
